Edwards said he was inspired by the classic Vietnam war film "Apocalypse Now" by director Francis Ford Coppola when creating the post-apocalyptic world in "The Creator". Meanwhile, the story of violent conflict between humankind and AI was inspired by Joseph Campbell's novel "The Hero with a Thousand Faces".

The setting of a post-apocalyptic world has been recreated and reimagined by many directors and movie studios, with modern blockbusters like "Blade Runner 2049" or "Ex Machina". "The Creator" will take on the challenge while trying to deliver a heavy concept - the never-ending fight between humans and technology - as well as thrilling action scenes for movie fans.
"The Creator" will hit theaters by the end of September. According to Gateway Film Center, as a future war between the human race and artificial intelligence rages on, ex-special forces agent Joshua (played by John David Washington) is recruited to hunt down and kill the Creator, the elusive architect of advanced AI. The Creator has developed a mysterious weapon that has the power to end the war and all of mankind. As Joshua and his team of elite operatives venture into enemy-occupied territory, they soon discover the world-ending weapon is actually an AI in the form of a young child.
