After Clash of the Titans remake director Louis Leterrier vacated Sony’s shark attack movie In the Deep, Jaume Collet-Serra (Orphan) boarded the ship. He’s set to direct the upcoming aquatic thriller, and a star is potentially swimming aboard. Read on.
THR reports that Blake Lively is in discussions to star in Collet-Serra’s latest horror effort, though the site points out that the actress has a scheduling conflict with Woody Allen’s next movie. It’s unlikely that she’ll be able to do both so for now her involvement is uncertain.
The script, by Anthony Jaswinski, centers on a young woman (Lively) dealing with the loss of her mother, surfing in an isolated area when she gets stranded on a buoy. Things take a turn for the worse when a gigantic great white shark comes between her and the shore.
Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem are producing.
