Netflix have produced some excellent award-winning TV since they first started creating their own original content a few years back, however their movie content has yet to reach the same great heights. Don't get us wrong, the likes of The Fundamentals of Caring and Tallulah were grand, but nothing to write home about.
We do however like the look of this upcoming movie The Discovery. Set in a world where the afterlife has been scientifically proven to exist, it stars Rooney Mara, Jason Segal and Robert Redford, the latter being the one who made the discovery. Segal plays his son while Mara is the woman he falls in love with.
The problem with the afterlife being real though is that millions of people have begun to take their own lives in order to start over. Yep, this could get very grim but also an interesting sci-fi tale that will undoubtedly reel a lot of viewers in out of curiosity alone.
"To describe the story as original doesn’t begin to capture the world that Charlie has created that will envelop you," said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. "Our global viewers are going to love this film."
Directed by Charlie McDowell and written by McDowell and Justin Lader, the film also features Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad, Fargo), Riley Keough (American Honey) and Ron Canada (The Strain).
It will be available on Netflix on March 31st.
