The monumental success of Deadpool might mark the start of a beautiful relationship between Reynolds and the film’s screenwriters. They were apparently impressed enough by his work in that movie to consider him for a role in Life, although the little that has been made public about the film suggests that it will be very different from their last project. Indeed, it seems the movie will give Reynolds a chance to act in a high-profile serious role, not unlike his performance in 2015’s critically-acclaimed Woman In Gold.
If Reynolds joins the cast, he will be starring alongside Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation‘s Rebecca Ferguson, the reported lead. The little that is known about Life suggests that it will be a gripping entry in the sci-fi genre, as reported below:
Life will follow a crew aboard the International Space Station who, after retrieving a sample from Mars, discover that it displays signs of life. Said life, of course, proves to be more intelligent and cunning than expected.
Life is set to be directed by Daniel Espinosa, the Swedish filmmaker behind films like Easy Money and Safe House. The latter, released in 2012, pulled in more than $208 million at the worldwide box office and starred Reynolds opposite Denzel Washington.
