After its underwhelming opening weekend at the box-office, a Life sequel appears very unlikely. Nobody was expecting a follow-up to the lean sci-fi horror movie anyway, but screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick actually have an idea or two for how to continue the story. It turns out that the duo has a bigger Aliens-esque sequel in mind for their Alien-esque film.
Below, check out their thoughts on a Life sequel (SPOILERS for Life ahead).

I found the first season of HBO’s Westworld to be intriguing and full of potential, but for me, it was ultimately more frustrating than satisfying. The concept, production design, and look of the show were all fantastic, but the way it purposefully withheld information as it attempted to preserve its big reveal rubbed me the wrong way. Thankfully, the showrunners appeared at this year’s PaleyFest and implied that their approach is going to be a little different in the second season. And in addition to those comments, they also revealed which host character was the first to exercise free will – and it may not be who you think. Read More »
I’m about 50 pages away from finishing Stephen King’s 1986 novel It, and holy crap, this book is tremendous. Without hyperbole, it’s one of the best books I’ve ever read. Rarely have I read a novel in which I’ve felt so firmly in the grip of a master storyteller – and I wasn’t crazy about the first Dark Tower book, so that praise isn’t coming from a fawning King devotee, either.
We’ve already seen a handful of photos from the upcoming film adaptation directed by Andres Muschietti, but a new batch of photos show off glimpses of the terrifying clown Pennywise (the “It” of the title) and our first look at the Losers Club, the group of outcast kids in Derry, Maine who come face to face with their worst nightmare.

Following Straight Outta Compton, the stars who played the core members of the groundbreaking rap group NWA became quickly rising stars. Jason Mitchell played Eazy E, Corey Hawkins played Dr. Dre and O’Shea Jackson Jr. stepped into the shoes of his father as Ice Cube. Since then, Hawkins went on to lead 24: Legacy while Mitchell took a solid supporting turn in the comedy Keanu and made a huge splash with an award-worthy performance in the Sundance selected Mudbound. Then they both went on to play key supporting characters in Kong: Skull Island. Now their NWA partner is joining the same movie monster universe.
O’Shea Jackson Jr. is currently in talks to take a role in Godzilla: King of Monsters, the sequel to the 2014 blockbuster directed by Rogue One: A Star Wars Story helmer Gareth Edwards, who won’t be back this time around. Find out more below. Read More »
There’s still hope for finding room for Hugh Jackman in Deadpool 2. Ryan Reynolds dreamt up a film starring both Logan and Wade Wilson, but Jackman’s time as the Wolverine is finished. He closed out his 16-year run as the character with a bang. He’s done.
Jackman could, on the other hand, play his most charming character yet in the sequel: Hugh Jackman. Below, read what screenwriters Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick had to say about this idea for a Deadpool 2 Hugh Jackman cameo.

Netflix loves being in business with Adam Sandler.
A few years ago, the streaming service struck a deal with the Saturday Night Live veteran turned comedy superstar that included the exclusive rights to four Adam Sandler vehicles. Even though there’s still one movie left in the Adam Sandler Netflix deal, the streaming service wanted to make sure they locked him down for even more. So they’re making even more. Read More »

Like a decades-old murder case where the deranged killer was never caught, HBO’s True Detective won’t stay buried. While the show has been on indefinite hiatus since the end of its deeply unpopular second season, it sounds like the once-beloved anthology mystery show may be lurching back into life with the help of a television veteran responsible for some of the greatest shows of all time. Are you ready for True Detective season 3?

It was impossible to play video games in the ’90s without being familiar with Lara Croft, the buxom explorer who became one of the industry’s most recognizable mascots. She even got her own movie in 2001, with Angelina Jolie taking on the part. A sequel followed in 2003.
But soon enough, video games grew up and Lara did, too. Our first look at the new Tomb Raider movie starring Alicia Vikander has arrived and her take on this video game icon looks to be very much in line with the rebooted version of the character.
