Wonder Woman breakout star Gal Gadot is in early talks to join Bradley Cooper in the MGM thriller Deeper, says Variety.
The film follows a former astronaut (to be played by Cooper) hired to take a submersible to the deepest part of the ocean. Supernatural events transpire as the vehicle gets closer to its destination.
White God helmer Kornel Mundruczo is also attached to the project. Max Landis (Victor Frankenstein, Chronicle), who penned the script, will produce with David Goyer and Addictive Pictures. If a deal closes, production is expected to start in the first quarter of 2018.
The script is being described as having elements of Gravity and some are saying that it’s a contender for an Oscar!
