Blake Lively is in discussions to star in the shark thriller “In the Deep” at Sony Pictures which Jaume Collet-Serra (“Run All Night”) is directing from a script by Anthony Jaswinski.
The story centers on a young woman (Lively) dealing with the loss of her mother who is surging in an isolated area when she gets stranded on a buoy just a few dozen yards from the shore.
There’s one problem – a hungry great white shark sits between her and the beach. Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem are producing.
Lively’s involvement isn’t a sure thing though due to a scheduling conflict with Woody Allen’s latest movie. The details are now being worked out.
