Set to close things off in Austin this year will be the sci-fi “Life.” Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, and Ryan Reynolds, directed by Daniel Espinosa (“Safe House“), and written by “Deadpool” duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, this one follows a mission to Mars that goes wrong.

Sony Pictures Entertainment has released a new preview and poster for their sci-fi thriller Life, which examines some of the big issues the film tackles. Instead of having stars such as Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal talk about the movie, the studio has enlisted a pair of real-life scientists, Dr. Kevin Fong, a space and emergency medicine expert, and Dr. Adam Rutherford, who shed some light on the plot and discuss how the issues told in this film would be examined in real life. This should certainly pique the curiosity for sci-fi fans out there, as we get closer and closer to the March 24 release date.
Life is a terrifying sci-fi thriller about a team of scientists aboard the International Space Station whose mission of discovery turns to one of primal fear when they find a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth. »
Barring anything else crazy happening by the end of Friday, this week’s winner in the category of “Wtf News” belongs to yesterday’s reports that Mel Gibson is in early talks to direct “Suicide Squad 2.” It’s not a done deal and there are other contenders in the mix — Daniel Espinosa (“Safe House,” the upcoming sci-fi “Life“), Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland,” “Gangster Squad“), and Jonathan Levine (“Warm Bodies,” “50/50“) — but that Gibson is even at the table is surprising.

Sources tell THR that talks are still in the early stages and Gibson is currently reviewing the material to familiarize himself with the franchise. Gibson previously picked up two Oscars for his “Braveheart” and it currently in contention for Best Picture for this year’s nominated “Hacksaw Ridge.”
But Gibson is not the only one being considered to helm the superhero sequel. According to Variety, Daniel Espinosa (“Safe House”), Jonathan Levine (“Warm Bodies,” “The Night Before”) and Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”) are also among the contenders to sit in the director’s chair. »

Warner Bros has Mel Gibson on a shortlist of directors to put together Suicide Squad 2...
Might the rehabilitation of Mel Gibson back into Hollywood be complete? His most recent film as director, Hacksaw Ridge, has proved a success, and earned Gibson another Best Director Oscar nomination. And now it’s being reported that Warner Bros has him on the shortlist to direct Suicide Squad 2.
With the director of the first Suicide Squad, David Ayer, set to focus on Gotham City Sirens instead (the movie that brings together female foes such as Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn), that leaves a vacancy for Suicide Squad 2. The Hollywood Reporter has broken the news that Warner Bros is “courting” Gibson to direct the new film.
It notes that it’s early days, and that a formal offer hasn’t been made, »
While attending a screening of Hacksaw Ridge, Gibson confirmed that the talks with Warner Bros regarding Suicide Squad 2 were indeed happening, but as of this writing, they are no where near any sort of deal.
"It's kind of a first date," he told the moderator. You can take a look at the video below, though be warned that the audio is very low.
Also of note from Variety reporter Justin Kroll:
Couple updates on the Suicide Squad director search since I posted after a few calls. First if Mel wants it, it's his.

Whether or not you liked Batman v Superman or Suicide Squad, there is no doubt that the DC Extended Universe is off to a bit of a rocky start. Yes, there are plenty out there who liked those movies — and rest assured, they made plenty of cash — but the narrative »

After much uncertainty, it seems as if we’ll definitely be getting a Suicide Squad 2. Those box office numbers proved to be strong enough to justify a sequel and now, Warner Bros. is on the hunt for a director. Earlier today, we heard that Mel Gibson was in talks, along with Daniel Espinosa and tonight, Variety is reporting that Zombieland‘s Ruben Fleischer and Warm Bodies‘ Jonathan Levine are also being eyed by the studio to take the helm.
From what we understand, there’s no clear frontrunner at the moment, given that it’s so early on in the search, and it’s expected that additional names will be added to the shortlist before a decision is made. When WB will settle on someone is unknown, but the project is definitely a priority »

Warner Bros. has begun the search for the director who will take over the reins for the sequel to box office hit “Suicide Squad.” Mel Gibson is perhaps the most surprising of the handful of possibilities.
Sources tell Variety that in addition to Gibson, Warners has met with — or is planning to meet with — Ruben Fleischer (“Zombieland”), Daniel Espinosa (“Safe House”), and Jonathan Levine (“Warm Bodies”).
Warner Bros. had no comment.
Insiders say the list could grow and that there is no front-runner at the moment.
David Ayer wrote and directed the original pic that starred Will Smith, Margot Robbie and Jared Leto. The pic followed a group of villains and antiheroes — including Deadshot, Harley Quinn, the Joker, Captain Boomerang, and Killer Croc — who are forced into the service of the government in exchange for lighter sentences. »

Warner Bros. has reportedly engaged in early talks with filmmaker Mel Gibson to direct the studio's Suicide Squad sequel. No formal offer has been issued yet, but Mel Gibson is reportedly "familiarizing himself" with the source material. Warner Bros. is also considering other filmmakers. Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) is one of the other directors the studio is eyeing, though it isn't clear how many other filmmakers are in the mix for this coveted gig.
The Hollywood Reporter broke the news today, revealing that the studio is not "being passive" in regards to this sequel. Many fans wondered if this would even happen at all, after Suicide Squad director David Ayer came aboard to direct another Warner Bros./DC project, Gotham City Sirens, which features Margot Robbie reprising her Suicide Squad role as Harley Quinn. A report from December revealed that a Suicide Squad sequel is still in the works, although »
At least, that’s according to THR, reporting that Gibson is now mulling over the possibility of directing Task Force X’s next outing. Without an official offer or any sign of concrete commitment from either party, we should stress that Gibson’s potential appointment is tentative at best, as WB is simply courting the actor-director-writer at this early, early stage.
THR goes on to note that Gibson, who recently received an Oscar nomination for his stellar work on WWII epic Hacksaw Ridge, is currently getting to grips with the source material. But given that Suicide Squad 2 – or whatever it winds up being titled – is considered a high-priority project for Warner Bros., the studio won’t wait around for long, and »

Dredd 2 looks no closer after all, with no sign of Karl Urban heading back to Mega City One...
There were slight murmurings of a fresh Dredd film last week, when the executive producer of the movie, Adi Shankar, gave an interview to Collider. In it, he said that “if anyone is still wondering, there’s no update on a Dredd sequel, but I’m gonna make it happen at some point. It may not be live-action, but it’s going to happen at some point. There will be more Judge Dredd at some point”.
Confident words, right? But sadly, they’re words that have been very politely taken down by Jason Kingsley. Kingsley is the man who co-owns Judge Dredd (being the joint chief of Rebellion, that owns 2000Ad), and he also served as »
Even if there were nothing else to draw viewers to Life, the fact both Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal are leaving their comfort zones to make a film that is, apparently, mostly a sci-fi thriller and in large part a horror effort is worth a ticket.
The new trailer, closely connected to the Super Bowl ad spot, gives a lot more information about what’s happening, though it was pretty clear before, and it also shows us some of the destruction and it gives away the fact that, whatever happens, it isn’t going to end well.
Most importantly, the trailer teases that as the pressure mounts, and the fate of the world rests in the hands of a few astronauts on the space station, there are going to be some big decisions that need to be made.

A new trailer has come our way for the Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal starring Life, a new sic-fi thriller from the minds of scribes Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (the mad geniuses responsible for the script to Deadpool) and director Daniel Espinosa (Safe House). Carrying a serious Alien vibe with it, there is something genuinely unnerving about Life, continuing the fine tradition of close quarters sci-fi-horror that began with Ridley Scott’s aforementioned classic. Check it out for yourself below. Released: March 24th Synopsis: Life is a terrifying sci-fi thriller about a team of scientists aboard the International Space Station whose mission of discovery turns to one of primal fear when they find a rapidly evolving life form that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth. »

With so many reboots and sequels happening in Hollywood, there is a lot of desire for some original, or at least non-franchise related movies. Sony is going to provide sci-fi fans with something original next month in the form of Life, which features Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds dealing with a deadly new form of life discovered on Mars. Now, Sony has released a brand new, full-length trailer for Life that gives us a much better idea of what to expect from the new sci-fi thriller.
Sony Pictures uploaded the brand new trailer online, which gives us our best look at Life yet. The studio is also airing a couple of Super Bowl spots for the movie, which have also been released online already. This new trailer expands on what we saw in the first teaser and looks to be a serious homage to Ridley Scott's original Alien. In the video, »
One. More. Day. - At this time tomorrow, we'll be deep into the second half of Super Bowl Li where hopefully the game is going exactly how we want it to go... Earlier today, Sony Pictures released a very tense new TV spot for their upcoming space sci-fi thriller Life, which stars Jake Gyllenhaal (Nocturnal Animals), Ryan Reynolds (Deadpool), and Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) in the lead roles as three astronauts who discover the hard way that some things are better off left alone. Daniel Espinosa (Safe House) directed with a script from Deadpool scribes Rhett Reese & Paul Wernick. Plot details, for the most part, have been kept under wraps until now, but the new synopsis does shed some light on the extinction-level horror our six protagonists will face: "Life is a terrifying sci-fi thriller about a team of scientists aboard the International Space Station whose mission »
2017 is the year we’re going to be freaked out in space at the multiplex. Ridley Scott‘s “Alien: Covenant” will once again bring galactic terror to the big screen, but coming first is the simply titled “Life,” where a bunch of astronauts face something definitely not human.

Starring Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson, from the pens of “Deadpool” writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, and directed by Daniel Espinosa (“Safe House,” “Easy Money“), the action takes place on board an international space station where things start going very, very wrong.

Ryan Reynolds got a big boost to his career last year with Deadpool, and while we have to wait a while for Deadpool 2, we are going to be seeing him back on the big screen very soon. He is going to be starring alongside Jake Gyllenhaal in the new sci-fi thriller Life, which just so happens to be written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, who penned the screenplay for Deadpool. Now, Sony Pictures has released their brand new Super Bowl spot for Life online.
Sony clearly has a lot of confidence in Life, or at the very least they want to get as many eyeballs on it as possible, since a 30-second slot of ad time cost an average of $5 million. In any case, this new video gives us a nice, brisk look at what to expect from the movie, which will be hitting theaters late next month. »
Ever since I first met Denzel Washington on the set of Spike Lee’s “Malcolm X,” I’ve felt comfortable with him. Maybe it’s because he and my mother grew up in the same working-class New York suburb, Mount Vernon. Fact is, I grew up in the film industry with Washington, along with Mel Gibson, Debra Winger, Bruce Willis, Kevin Costner, and John Travolta; we’re all close to the same age.
I know the way he swings his tall body into that loping, cocky walk. And it’s fun to watch him, in the green room at the Writers Guild, enthusiastically wave his hands around when he talks about directing. He’s in a good mood: His August Wilson film adaptation of “Fences” has been enthusiastically received, by critics, audiences and — perhaps most crucially for its Oscar chances — actors, landing the coveted SAG Ensemble nomination.
In his third directorial outing (“The Debaters, »
