Harvey Weinstein is reportedly pursuing Ben Affleck and Matt Damon to star together in "A Speck In The Sea," a film adaptation of Paul Tough's New York Times story.
The story follows two lobsterman who go fishing forty miles off the coast of Montauk. While one is sleeping, the other falls into the water, and spends the next twelve hours fighting for his life with only rubber boots keeping his head above water.
The project is still in the early stages, no writer is yet onboard, and with the pair's schedules it will be a long way off before such a project could come to fruition.
