Jude Law Heads To Black Sea
Kevin Macdonald's new sub thriller

Jude Law

Jude Law may no longer be part of the cast for Jane Got A Gun (and, according to this report, he’s also ditched Werner Herzog’s Queen Of The Desert), but he is interested in diving down to dark depths for Kevin Macdonald, signing on to lead Black Sea.

Focus Features has just snapped up the worldwide rights to the film, written by Dennis Kelly. The plot finds Law as a submarine captain who gets laid off by a salvage company.

Looking to make some money, and possibly get one up on his former employers, he accepts a gig from a shadowy backer to hunt for a stolen, sunken submarine currently sitting at the bottom of the Black Sea.

Putting together a crew of Russian and English sailors to complete the task, the captain begins to realise that he might be a little too far out of his depth (sorry) and that his decidedly untrustworthy crew might be more dangerous than he first thought. Probably not the safest situation when you’re in a pressurised metal container deep beneath the ocean’s surface...

Macdonald, who last made Marley and has How I Live Now set for release on October 18, is preparing to make this one his next film. Let’s hope he’s able to hold on to Law...
