Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner's intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.

2013 Guide Analysis: "Nominated for multiple awards including an Oscar, and one of the most profitable VOD films to ever get a simultaneous theatrical release, J.C. Chandor impressed many with 2011's GFC-themed "Margin Call." He returns with this open water thriller which swaps Margin's large ensemble for a completely different approach - a one man show.

75 year-old Robert Redford spent an intense two months shooting this project, often soaked to the bone in the story of a man lost at sea who must battle against the elements to stay alive. Much like Alfonso Cuaron's upcoming "Gravity," the lead star spends practically the entire film alone in a highly volatile and dangerous environment. Should it all come together, it could also sport potential awards-worthy work from Redford.

Chandor claims he wrote the film specifically with the actor in mind after he met him at Sundance. Filmed at that giant water tank in Mexico which has been employed on the likes of "Titanic" and "Pearl Harbor," Universal will likely release 'Lost' sometime in the Fall."
