Having first worked together on 2000’s drug-induced masterpiece Requiem for a Dream, Jared Leto and Darren Aronofsky are now set to work together again on the Jason Blum produced upcoming project Adrift, according to a report from Deadline.
Adrift is a short story in a collection of seven short stories titled ‘Dark Water’ that was written by Koji Suzuki and released in Japan in 1996 and then was also released as a manga in 2002. Koji Suzuki is perhaps most famous for writing the trilogy of ‘Ring’ novels which led to the Japanese film Ringu in 1998 and later the American remake The Ring in 2002.
Along with directing, Aronofsky will be co-writing the script alongside Luke Dawson (The Lazarus Effect). The film will follow the efforts of a fishing boat who responds to a distress call from an abandoned yacht and discovers a “ghost ship”.
