Actress Gal Gadot is in early talks to join actor Bradley Cooper in the thriller Deeper.
White God helmer Kornel Mundruczo is also attached to the project. Max Landis, who penned the script, will produce it with David Goyer and Addictive Pictures. If a deal closes, production is expected to start in the first quarter of 2018, reports variety.com.
The film follows a former astronaut (to be played by Cooper) hired to take a submersible to the deepest part of the ocean. Supernatural events transpire as the vehicle gets closer to its destination.
Following the news that Wonder Woman helmer Patty Jenkins closed a deal to direct Wonder Woman 2, sources wondered if Gadot would film another movie prior to commencing production on the superhero sequel.
The tentpole has become one of the biggest domestic box office hits of the year, grossing more then $411 million in the US and almost $819 million worldwide.
