There’s always something infinitely fascinating about the murky depths of the deep sea, and now Idris Elba is in talks to take a closer look at said murky depths.
Courtesy of Heat Vision, the Luther star is in negotiations to headline MGM’s Deeper. A supernatural sci-fi thriller, the film is to be directed by Everest and Adrift’s Baltasar Kormakur from a screenplay by Bright’s Max Landis.
The early blurb on Deeper reads:
Deeper is a supernatural thriller that centres on a disgraced astronaut who is on a deep-sea dive exploring a newly discovered trench but soon finds himself confronted by a sinister and dangerous force.
At this early stage, Deeper is being described as having a similar to The Martian and Gravity. Having been in development for a little while now, at one point Bradley Cooper and Gal Gadot were on board to star.
Expect more on Deeper as it continues to develop.
