After her years spent in franchise territory, Kristen Stewart (The Runaways) has, for the most part, stuck to smaller scale indie movies. But she is heading for action with disaster thriller Underwater and news arrives via Variety that T.J. Miller (Deadpool) and Jessica Henwick (Game Of Thrones) have signed on to join her in peril.
William Eubank (The Signal) is directing the movie, with Brian Duffield (Insurgent) on script duty. As you might be able to figure out from the title, Underwater is set in a subaquatic laboratory which is damaged when an earthquake hits. With the structure ruptured and water pouring in, the researchers must struggle to survive. We would expect to learn about more casting soon as the plan is to kick off shooting the movie this month in New Orleans.
Stewart is currently on our screens in Certain Women and has Personal Shopper hitting the UK on the 17 March. She will also be seen in biographical crime drama Lizzie. Miller has a voice in The Emoji Movie and worked on Steven Spielberg's (Bridge Of Spies) Ready Player One, due on 30 March next year, while Henwick is one of the stars of the Marvel Netflix series Iron Fist, hitting the streaming service on 17 March.
