Louis Leterrier (“Now You See Me ,” “Clash of the Titans”) is in talks to direct the shark attack thriller “In the Deep” at Sony Pictures.
The story follows a young girl who is getting over her mother’s death. Out surfing, she is attacked by a shark and finds herself stranded on a buoy, twenty yards off shore.
With a massive great white shark standing in her way between the buoy and the beach, she must get back to shore before succumbing to her injuries.
Anthony Jaswinski (“Vanishing on 7th Street”) penned the 2014 Black List script while Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem will produce.
