Director Shane Carruth‘s (Primer, Upstream Color) next project is "The Modern Ocean".
"The Modern Ocean" will have a much bigger budget and scale than his last two projects.Anne Hathaway, Daniel Radcliffe and Keanu Reeves have been cast as leads in the film.
Chloe Grace Moretz, Tom Holland (Wolf Hall), Asa Butterfield (Ender’s Game), Jeff Goldblum, and Abraham Attah (Beasts of No Nation) will also star.
The report reveals that The Modern Ocean is based on Carruth’s 200-page script, which includes numerous photos and — seriously — diagrams, though if you’re familiar with the eccentric brilliance of Carruth, that’s hardly surprising intel.
The Modern Ocean centers on the brutal competition over trading routes, culminating in an epic battle between cargo ships and their traders. “This epic tale, fraught with danger and intrigue, takes us from the ancient trading houses of Algeria to the darkest depths of the ocean floor.” The producers also added that the film is “enormously inventive, but grounded in arcane reality” and “will draw audiences in to a secretive world filled with mysterious technologies and bitter rivalries.”
this sounds really interesting. and damn @ danrad's post HP career
