Over the past few months, original Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick have been hard at work on the sequel and now thanks to a new exclusive from Collider.com, we have word of a new writer also pitching in a hand: Drew Goddard. According to the report, Ryan Reynolds is working with Goddard, with Reese and Wernick still extremely involved in the script, with Goddard added as a consultant. The move seems to show that everyone involved is hoping to get the script just right however, a release date has still not officially been announced.
20th Century Fox has released an extended prologue for Alien: Covenant that teases Ridley Scott’s Prometheus follow-up. The prologue is not actually part of the film but is a short film directed by Scott’s son Luke Scott called Prologue: Last Supper. It shows the crew of the Covenant having a “last supper” before entering cryosleep. The film stars Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup, Danny McBride, and James Franco. It opens on May 19th.

According to an exclusive report from Collider.com, Joe Carnahan is writing the new X-Force movie for 20th Century Fox. Fox is on a hot streak with their R-rated superhero movies so Carnahan’s tone seems to be a natural fit for the grittier spin on the X-Men task force. As of now, Carnahan is only writing the script for X-Force and is not currently attached to direct; with a release date yet to be determined.
After taking a bit of a break following the release of Unbroken, Angelina Jolie is lining up a series of new projects. Per THR, Jolie has acting offers that include a return for Maleficent 2 and a pair of large-scale projects at Universal: Catherine the Great and Potemkin: The Imperial Love Affair, and a World War II spy drama called The Spy Who Loved. As for directorial efforts, THR adds that Jolie is prepping an adaptation of Alessandro Baricco’s novel Without Blood.
A new trailer for The Discovery starring Robert Redford, Jason Segal and Rooney Mara has been released. The movie, which had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival last month, is the latest film from director Charlie McDowell and stars Robert Redford as a scientist who discovers a “new plane of existence” beyond our world, essentially throwing the entire population of Earth into crisis. Jason Segel plays Redford’s son and Rooney Mara plays the woman he meets after returning to his hometown. It hits Netflix on March 31, 2017.
