Jaume Collet-Serra Eyed for Sony's IN THE DEEP

Movie News

Recent weeks have seen Warner Brothers in talks with Eli Roth about directing prehistoric shark adaptation MEG, but earlier this year there was talk of a Sony project known as In the Deep. Well that film is now also close to landing a director.

Deadline is reporting that House of Wax and Orphan director Jaume Collet-Serra is in the frame to helm In the Deep, with a draft screenplay already in place courtesy of Tony Jaswinski. The plot centres on a woman stranded out at sea with a shark stalking the stretch of water between her and the shore. The early version of the script has already been dubbed a cross between Jaws and 127 Hours.

Much like Roth is yet to officially board MEG, Collet-Serra is yet to sign on to helm In the Deep. With that said, expect to hear more on this as and when it develops.
