Louis Leterrier is in talks to direct the shark attack thriller In the Deep for Sony Pictures. The script by Anthony Jaswinski (Vanishing on 7th Street) sparked a heated bidding war last September, in which Sony beat out Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox. The script landed on the 2014 Black List as one of the top unproduced screenplays of the year.
The story follows a young girl, mourning the recent loss of her mother, who goes surfing on a remote beach. After being attacked by a shark, she finds herself stranded on a buoy, 20 yards off shore, with this massive great white shark standing in her way between the buoy and the beach. She must find a way back to shore before succumbing to her injuries. The script has been described as a cross between 127 Hours, Gravity and the shark classic Jaws.Read More

Fantastic Voyage could begin shooting in early 2011, though 20th Century Fox is still in the process of figuring out a budget.
