Lady Bird star Tracy Letts and Fargo actress Rachel Blanchard are set to join Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas in Adrian Lyne’s erotic thriller Deep Water over at New Regency, Collider has exclusively learned.
As we reported back in August, Deep Water finds Affleck and rising star de Armas playing a married couple who open up their marriage in the hopes of saving their relationship, only to see things take a dark and deadly turn.
Details - Letts - Blanchard - Characters - Wraps
Details on Letts and Blanchard’s characters are under wraps, but it’s believed that Blanchard is either playing a woman who has an affair with Affleck’s character, or whose husband has an affair with de Armas’ character. Either way, she gets caught up in the couple’s kinky mind games.
The film is based on a novel by Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley) that has been adapted by Zack Helm (Stranger Than Fiction) and Sam Levinson (Euphoria). Steve Zaillian and Garrett Basch are producing with Anthony Katagas and Arnon Milchan, as well as Guymon Casady and Ben Forkner of Entertainment 360. Production will start next month, and the project is expected to fall under New Regency’s output deal with Fox/Disney.
Water - Return - Thriller - Genre - Lyne
Deep Water marks a return to the thriller genre for Lyne, who hasn’t directed a feature since 2002’s Unfaithful. Before that, the English filmmaker helmed such classics as Flashdance, Fatal Attraction, 9 1/2 Weeks, Jacob’s Ladder, and Indecent Proposal.
