Newcomer Daniel Zovatto has booked the lead in Glass Eye Pictures’ indie Beneath, which genre veteran Larry Fessenden (Wendigo) is directing, says Variety.
“The story will follow six kids stranded on a rowboat who are attacked by a man-eating fish. The horror takes a page out of Hitchock’s book as, in order to survive, the kids one-by-one vote each other off the boat.”
Production is currently under way in Connecticut.
Zovatto just wrapped his first feature Innocence, an adaptation of Jane Mendelsohn’s bestselling teen novel that Hilary Brougher directed for Killer Films. Pic co-stars Linus Roach, Perry Reeves, Sophie Curtis and Graham Phillips.
