Mark Bomback (“Unstoppable,” “Live Free or Die Hard”) will pen an adaptation of Robert Kurson’s non-fiction deep sea adventure novel “Shadow Divers” for Fox 2000 with Scott Free reports Variety.
The story follows two wreck divers who in 1991 discovered the hull of a German U-boat in waters off New Jersey. The divers spent seven years searching for the truth behind the ship and men who died inside it.
Robert Schwentke (“The Time Traveler’s Wife,” “Red”) was attached to direct the project back in August. William Broyles penned a previous draft of the script.
