Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas in Talks to Star in Adrian Lyne's DEEP WATER

Ben Affleck ("Argo") and Ana De Armas ("Blade Runner 2049") are in talks to star in the psychological thriller "Deep Water". Based on Patricia Highsmith's novel of the same name, the film will be directed by Adrian Lyne ("Fatal Attraction", "Indecent Proposal", "Jacob's Ladder"), making it his first project since 2002's "Unfaithful", which starred Diane Lane in an Oscar-nominated performance.

Set in 1957, the story follows a small-town couple, who will be played by Affleck and de Armas, whose loveless marriage is held together only thanks to an arrangement in which she is allowed to take however many lovers she wishes, so long as she never abandons her family. But when the husband grows jealous, he concocts a murderous plot in which slowly, many of the lovers turn up dead.

The screenplay is written by Zack Helm ("Stranger Than Fiction") and Sam Levinson ("Euphoria"). New Regency's Arnon Milchan, Garrett Basch and Steven Zaillian are producing with Entertainment 360's Guymon Casady and Ben Forkner.

Affleck is also set to star in Warner Bros' unofficially titled "The Way Back" directed by Gavin O'Connor, and the crime drama "The Last Thing He Wanted" in which he stars opposite Anne Hathaway and Willem Dafoe. De Armas will play Marilyn Monroe in the upcoming Netflix film "Blonde", and will also appear in Bond 25.
