‘Orphan’ Director Heads ‘In the Deep’ (‘The Shallows’)

Blake Lively, pictured below, is set to star in Sony’s shark movie In the Deep, which has been described as a cross between 127 Hours and Jaws, writes TheWrap.

The big news is that Orphan and House of Wax‘s Jaume Collet-Serra recently came on to replace Louis Leterrier as director! He’ll be working from a script by Tony Jaswinski that Sony acquired in a bidding war last fall.

“In the Deep will pit Lively against a sadistic shark that has her trapped on a buoy 20 yards from the shore. The script is said to provide a strong emotional vehicle for a young actress, and Lively is a solid fit for the material.

Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem are producing for Weimaraner Republic Pictures.

    Always good to see Blake in a mainstream flick. She’s not too shabby of an actress.

    “Stay away from that shark, it’s a god damn sadist!”

    A “sadistic” shark? Seriously?

    • Nick Wolf

      In the movie…yes sadistic. In real life no.

    ” Sadistic Shark ” I like the sound of that. Finally another shark creature feature, I hope there is very little CGI work and more from the actual prop. Either way pretty stoked about this and blake is a good actress, so to see her in this type of role will be interesting.

    Wasn’t Open Water already a cross between 127 Hours and Jaws?
