The Hollywood Reporter recently broke what could be Blake Lively’s next prospective project: an intense, surfer shark thriller entitled In The Deep. The drama, about an unnamed character’s struggle versus a great white shark, is to be directed by Jaume Collet. And, it looks as if Lively is in talks to play the lead role.

Lively though, last seen in Age of Adeline, is currently in production for the movie All I See Is You as well as being cast in Woody Allen’s untitled film for 2016, so there is no definite confirmation that she will be taking the role in In The Deep. The film will also be competing with a similar project which Mandy Moore recently signed onto entitled 47 Meters Down.

In The Deep has no official start of production date, but it could have a predicted release date for late 2016 or early 2017.
