Amazon Looking To Bring You LIFE ITSELF

Starring Oscar Isaac, Annette Bening, and Samuel L. Jackson!

People seem to really like This Is Us - the Dan Fogelman created familial melodrama on NBC. I've never seen a single episode, but I hear they find a new way to kill off Milo Ventimiglia each week, which is a high concept I can really get behind (not enough to watch, though. Be reasonable). 

Now, Amazon is getting into the Fogelman business, purchasing Life Itself - an ensemble drama he wrote and directed that stars Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Annette Bening, Samuel L. Jackson, Antonio Banderas, Olivia Cooke, Mandy Patinkin and Laia Costa (holy shit that cast). Fogelman's movie is being described as a "multi-generational love story in which several characters are connected over the course of decades, from the streets of New York to the Spanish countryside and back." No word on how Milo dies in this one. 

Amazon's upcoming film roster is incredibly eclectic, including the Joaquin Phoenix/Lynne Ramsay vigilante joint, You Were Never Really Here, the David Oyelowo dark comedy, Gringo, and Luca Guadagnino's remake of Suspiria (which I've started to hear whisperings is legitimately great). No release date has been set as of yet, but we're definitely curious to check this one out.
