Summit Entertainment has made offers to Brad Pitt and Shia LaBeouf to star in its upcoming project, Riptide, which, according to Pajiba is a "whodunnit" of sorts, set on board a ship called the Nautica.

The story centers on a handyman, a young stock broker, and the stock broker's girlfriend. One of the men is found dead floating in the sea. The girlfriend is found at a nearby hotel. An investigator is called in to figure out what happened and why.

Peter Morgan (Frost/Nixon) rewrote the script, from an original by Richard McBrien.
