Idris Elba in talks to lead supernatural thriller Deeper

The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Golden Globe winner Idris Elba (Luther, Beasts of No Nation, Thor: Ragnarok) is in talks to star in Deeper, a supernatural sci-thriller from MGM written by Max Landis (Bright, An American Werewolf in London, Chronicle) and directed by Baltasar Kormakur (Everest, Adrift).

Deeper centers on a disgraced astronaut, to be played by Elba, who is on a deep-sea dive exploring a newly discovered trench but soon finds himself confronted by a sinister and dangerous force.

MGM initially paid seven figures to acquire the rights to the script from Landis a few years ago. Bradley Cooper, Gal Gadot, and director Kornel Mundruzco were originally attached to the project but eventually departed.

David Goyer, Kevin Turen, Russell Ackerman, John Schoenfelder, and Landis will serve as producers on Deeper, which is being described as similar to Gravity and The Martian.

Elba will next be seen in the spinoff Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw as the villain and is currently filming Working Title and Universal’s adaptation of Cats playing the feline Macavity. Upcoming projects include the new season of Luther, the new series Turn Up Charlie for Netflix, and George Miller’s Three Thousand Years of Longing.
