Not too long ago, a new theory about the upcoming movie Life came about. The theory came from Reddit and suggested that Life could actually be another movie in disguise. And, what movie is that, you ask? A setup for a Venom film, no less.
It could make sense given that Venom is an extraterrestrial monster and Life seems to focus on a similar alien. And there’s actually a few connections that could suggest Life has an ulterior motive – such as the film being produced by Sony, the writers behind it once wrote a script for a Venom film, and one of the trailers even uses footage from Spider-Man 3.
And just as the rumor was gaining momentum, Sony went ahead and scheduled a Venom movie for release on October 5, 2018. A little coincidental, isn’t it?
Unfortunately, or maybe it’s a good thing, Sony and everyone else involved with the film debunked this rumor. Collider even managed to get an interview with the film’s director to ask him about the theory, and got a few interesting responses.
It certainly goes to show how far a simple theory can go, and it makes one wonder just how it would’ve been if it were true.
Lie hits theaters March 24th, 2017.
