Without a doubt Rebecca Ferguson was one of 2015's breakout stars. Now, she’s breaking out of the atmosphere. The star of Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation has been cast in a scifi movie called Life, written by the guys who did Deadpool.

Life, which will be directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), follows a group of astronauts on the International Space Station who bring back a sample from Mars. They then realize it’s much more dangerous than they originally thought. It sounds a little like Alien, but closer to home.

Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, who wrote Zombieland and the upcoming Deadpool, came up with the story and wrote the script.

After her star-making performance in Mission: Impossible, Ferguson has been a very sought-after actor. Along with Life, rumor has it she’ll be the rare female lead returning to the M:I franchise when filming starts later this year.
