“Gilmore Girls” star Jared Padalecki has been set for a trio of projects that includes the Fox remake of “The Flight of the Phoenix.”

Padalecki has been set to star in the Focus Features drama “Living the Life,” directed by Jeff Wadlow. Produced by Doug Liman, the drama revolves around a group of boarding school seniors, one of whom spread an email virus hoax about a serial killer. The thesp then moves to the Chris Sarandon-directed “Moonlight Drive,” joining Shawn Ashmore and Joanna Gleason in the drama about teens who bury the victim of a car accident and reap the consequences.

He then films a role in “Phoenix,” the remake of the 1965 pic about a stranded cargo plane that stars Dennis Quaid and Giovanni Ribisi.

Padalecki recently wrapped “New York Minute” with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen for Warner Bros.
