Woody Harrelson, Simu Liu and Djimon Hounsou have been cast to star in the upcoming deep-sea thriller ‘Last Breath.’
Based on the 2019 documentary, the story is about a commercial diver who was stranded on the bottom of the North Sea with only five minutes of oxygen and no chance of rescue for over 35 minutes. The project is said to have elements of ‘Apollo 13’ and ‘The Perfect Storm.’
Alex Parkinson, the co-director of the documentary, will helm the project from a screenplay by Mitchell LaFortune. Paul Brooks, David Brooks, Stewart le Maréchal, Al Morrow, Anna Mohr-Pietsch and Jeremy Plager will produce the film.
Harrelson most recently starred in “’Venom: Let There Be Carnage.’ He’ll also be seen in ‘Man From Toronto’ with Kevin Hart.
Having led Marvel’s ‘Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings’, Liu will also appear in the upcoming ‘Barbie’ movie alongside Margot Robbie and director Greta Gerwig.
Hounsou most recently starred in ‘The King’s Man’ and will next appear in Zack Snyder’s ‘Rebel Moon.’
