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.
