That is certainly quite a cast. FilmNation are providing backing for the new drama, which is still largely shrouded in mystery. What we do know is that The Modern Ocean will follow the fraught competition between valuable shipping routes, a search for a hidden cache of some priceless material and how vengeance drives a secretive world that boasts cryptic technologies and burning rivalries.
We will have to wait and see whether the bigger cast means Carruth also has to be less ambiguous in his storytelling, but it sounds like he is blending the complex, thoughtful tone he has employed before with some bigger action. There is no word on when the shoot will kick off, but we would imagine there will be some schedule juggling in store to make that large cast work.
