Sony’s ocean thriller IN THE DEEP may have just found its director in Louis Leterrier, who Deadline reports is in talks to helm the project written by Anthony Jaswinski. The Black List script tells the story of a lone surfer attacked by a shark and stranded on a reef who must find a way back to shore before succumbing to her injuries.

What we know about the film is that it’s being described as a cross between 127 HOURS meets JAWS, with some GRAVITY thrown in there because why not? In it, a young woman who is dealing with the recent death of her mother is surfing on an isolated beach and gets stranded 20 yards offshore on a buoy. What lies between her and the shore is a huge great white shark.

Leterrier helmed the first two TRANSPORTER films, and more recently NOW YOU SEE ME and the upcoming Sacha Baron Cohen pic GRIMBSY. IN THE DEEP sparked quite the bidding war back in September, which was ultimately won out by Sony. It will be produced by Weimaraner Republic Pictures partners Lynn Harris and Matti Leshem.
