Sharlto Copley in "Europa Report"

Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, has picked up US rights to sci-fi film "Europa Report," starring Sharlto Copley. Watch the teaser trailer below.

The film marks Copley's return to the sci-fi genre following "District 9"; he recently wrapped production on Disney's "Maleficent" with Angelina Jolie. "Europa Report" is the English-language directorial debut of Sebastian Cordero ("Chronicles"), and was penned by Philip Gelatt. Oscar-winning production designer Eugenio Caballero ("Pan's Labyrinth") and cinematographer Enrique Chediak ("127 Hours") are also part of the team.

Magnolia will release the film later this year.

A unique blend of documentary, alternative history and science fiction thriller, EUROPA REPORT follows a contemporary mission to Jupiter's moon Europa, to investigate the possible existence of alien life within our solar system. Developed in close collaboration with NASA, JPL, SpaceX and other leaders in the scientific community, the film imagines the next step in manned space exploration and is based on recent scientific discoveries and theories.
