Moon Helmer Escapes From The “Deep”

Duncan Jones (“Moon”) is set to direct the submarine drama “Escape From The Deep” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows a legendary World War II U.S. navy submarine that sank after a torpedo malfunction left the crew stranded on the bottom of the Pacific Ocean.

Faced with drowning, nine men made it out alive after swimming the 180 feet to the surface without getting the bends.

British author/journalist Alex Kershaw penned the novel and adapted the script.
