We all know about Thor now (yay!), but I was short on details about Tessa Thompson's other sci-fi movie in the works, Annihilation. Check out some details from HitFix:

The film is based on the best-selling novel of the same series by Jeff VanderMeer and it promises to be a terrifying good time.

In the novel, a mysterious patch of land known as Area X appeared three decades ago. Cut off from the rest of civilization, many expeditions have been sent into the dangerous territory. Save for the first group, none of have ended well. The plot centers around the four scientists — the Biologist, the Anthropologist, the Psychologist, and the Surveyor — who make up the 12th expedition. The story is told through the Biologist’s field journal. After discovering a quote about the “strangling vine” written in living vines in a subterranean stairwell, things quickly go sideways for the group.

So far Natalie Portman (“Jane Got A Gun”) and Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”) are attached. The Wrap announced Tessa Thompson (“Creed”) is closing in on the third lead, but there’s no word yet on who will round out the cast. Nor who will play which role.
