Gugu Mbatha-Raw Picture
David Oyelowo Picture
David Oyelowo ("Selma") and Gugu Mbatha-Raw ("Beyond the Lights") are set to lead the upcoming J.J. Abrams-produced sci-fi thriller "God Particle".

The film will be directed by Julius Onah ("The Girl Is in Trouble") and it tells the story of a "a team of astronauts on a mission who make a terrifying discovery that challenges all they know about the fabric of reality, as they desperately fight for survival."

Of course, there is speculation at this point that this could be another installment in the "Cloverfield" franchise, considering that this year's sequel, "10 Cloverfield Lane" came out of nowhere and at first glance it hardly seemed related to the first film. Nothing is certain at this point, and knowing Abrams, we won't know until the day it arrives in theaters.

Production is set to begin in the second quarter of 2016 with the release date set for February 27, 2017.

Product Description: From Mario Puzo, the best-selling author of The Godfather, comes the riveting saga of the life, loves and dreams of the infamous Sicilian bandit, Salvatore Giuliano. Directed by the Academy Award-winning director of The Deer Hunter, Michael Cimino, this epic motion picture stars Christopher Lambert (Highlander) in the most powerful performance of his career.

World War II is finally over, and a war-torn world is at rest. But for the island of Sicily, whose inhabitants dream of independence from Rome's oppressive, ironhanded regime, the struggle has just begun. Three powers have always ruled the island – the Church, the landowners and the Mafia – until Salvatore Giuliano pronounced himself the fourth.

Determined that Sicily shall gain its freedom, Giuliano and his "brothers" rob and ransom the rich, cold-bloodedly murdering all who dare to defy or betray them. As Giuliano proudly redistributes his newfound wealth among the peasants, Don Masino, the head of the Sicilian Mafia, declares that Giuliano must be stopped – at any cost. Now it's a fight for survival, as the bloodiest manhunt in Italian history sweeps the countryside of the notorious outlaw, Giuliano.
