Ryan Reynolds Considers Mars Thriller “Life”

Following the record smashing opening weekend for “Deadpool,” the film’s star Ryan Reynolds has entered talks to team with “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” scene stealer Rebecca Ferguson on the sci-fi feature “Life” at Skydance Productions.

The story focuses on a Mars mission that finds intelligent alien life. It’s something of a coming home for Reynolds who will re-team with “Deadpool” scribes Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese and his “Safe House” director Daniel Espinosa on the project.

David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn are producing with Paramount likely to be the film’s distributor.
