Ben Affleck & Ana de Armas Team Up for Adrian Lyne's Deep Water

Ben Affleck & Ana de Armas Team Up for Adrian Lyne's Deep Water
Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas are circling a movie together. The project in question is an adaptation of the novel Deep Water which, in itself, given the acclaimed nature of the source material, is enough to pique the interest of cinema lovers. However, the potentially big thing is that director Adrian Lyne, who hasn't made a movie since 2002's Unfaithful, is set to helm the adaptation, which appears to be coming together rather quickly.

According to a new report, both Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas are set to star together as the married couple at the center of the story in Deep Water. New Regency is behind the project and is set to fully finance. Adriane Lyne is expected to get cameras rolling in November, assuming all of the pieces fall into place. The indication is that's going to happen. Zack Helm (Stranger Than Fiction) and Sam Levinson (Euphoria) penned the screenplay,

Ben Affleck & Ana De Armas To Star In New Erotic Thriller From ‘Fatal Attraction’ Director Adrian Lyne

There was a moment in time, namely the ‘80s and ‘90s when director Adrian Lyne was the go-to filmmaker for anything resembling an erotic thriller. After breaking out with “Flashdance,” Lyne went on to direct “9 ½ Weeks,” “Indecent Proposal,” and “Fatal Attraction,” with the latter earning him an Oscar nomination. Then in 2002, Lyne directed the film “Unfaithful.

Ben Affleck To Star In Fatal Attraction Director’s New Erotic Thriller

David Fincher’s Gone Girl introduced the world to a different side of Ben Affleck. Placed in an eerie domestic environment, the Argo actor and director flourished as a man stuck in a web both he and the audience couldn’t quite understand.

Fortunately, it’s looking like we won’t have to wait much longer to witness a similarly creepy and creeped-out performance from Affleck. In what’s shaping up to be the first film he’s directed since 2002’s Unfaithful, Adrian Lyne’s latest project, Deep Water, is set to start production this November with Batfleck and Blade Runner 2049 star Ana de Armas in talks to lead. As reported by Deadline, should all the pieces fall into place, the New Regency picture will go through its deal with Fox/Disney.

Ben Affleck, Ana De Armas in Talks for Erotic Thriller ‘Deep Water’
Ben Affleck and Ana De Armas are in negotiations to star in the erotic thriller “Deep Water” with Adrian Lyne directing and New Regency fully financing.

If the deals are signed, production would start in November with a release through New Regency’s deal with Fox. Zach Helm and Sam Levinson wrote the script, which is based on a 1957 novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith. The story follows a small-town couple in a loveless marriage in which the wife is allowed to take lovers as long as she does not desert the family. However, complications arise when the husband takes credit for the unsolved murder of one of the former lovers.

New Regency’s Arnon Milchan, Garrett Basch and Steven Zaillian are producing with Entertainment 360’s Guymon Casady and Ben Forkner. Lyne set up the project at Fox 2000 in 2013 and New Regency bought control of it last year.

Adrian Lyne Returns With — Wait for It — an Erotic Thriller That Stars Ben Affleck
English filmmaker Adrian Lyne is in talks to return to directing for his first film since 2002’s Academy Award-nominated “Unfaithful.” According to Deadline, the master of the psychosexual nail-biter is looking at a November production start date for “Deep Water,” set to star Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas.

Oscar-nominated for Best Director for 1987’s erotic shocker “Fatal Attraction,” Lyne will be back in his wheelhouse for “Deep Water,” a sexy thriller adapted by Zach Helm (“Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium”) and Sam Levinson (HBO’s “Euphoria”) from a novel by psychological suspense connoisseur Patricia Highsmith.

The story centers on married couple Vic and Melinda, whose open marriage is tested by an unsolved murder that resurfaces from Melinda’s past. In Highsmith tradition, the novel concerns itself more deeply with plunging beneath the illusory veneer of picture-perfect, midcentury American life. Her works have been adapted into films classic and contemporary,

Lyne is heading back to familiar territory here, having enjoyed huge success in the erotic thriller genre with the likes of 9 1/2 Weeks, Fatal Attraction and Indecent Proposal.

James Bond vs Online: A Cinematic Take on the Casino Trend

It might be hard to recreate the essential casino experience. The one where you step in to a converted chateaux with high ceilings, chandeliers, plush carpet and expensive porcelain. The sound of the roulette table, gasps of excitement and the steady clicking of the reels on some nearby slots. It’s what you’d expect from a Bond movie or maybe a more heady version with music, lights and alcohol in Las Vegas taken straight from the film The Hangover.

Obviously the casino scenes we see in movies are very different to the ones experienced in real life. The spare seat at the table, the gathering crowd, the big wins, the lucky lady and the obligatory Texan with the cowboy hat are Hollywood staples of the casino movie genre.

Whatever the image you’ve conjured, the reality is very different. The casino experience is changing, people are more

‘What/If’ Review: Renée Zellweger’s Netflix Soap Is Exquisite, Binge-Worthy Trash

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains mild spoilers for “What/If” Season 1, in that any details about the twist-heavy plot are technically spoilers.]

It actually takes a lot of hard, focused work to make a TV show so bad it’s good. Think of “Barry.” The excellent HBO comedy is only getting better, but Bill Hader is a great (Emmy-winning) actor being asked to portray a bad one. Sure, the “SNL” veteran knows what a bad actor looks like — he was, after all, still part of the cast when Gerard Butler hosted — but he also knows what makes bad acting entertaining. “Barry” is filled with awful performances used toward brilliant comedy, whether it’s the tone deaf choices of his acting class or Barry trying to act (aka lie) in his day-to-day life.

Now, instead of just one element of the show being bad, imagine an entire series built from that same qualitative mentality. Putting all those pieces together is difficult, let alone finding a story to support them, but “What / If” does exactly that.

Renee Zellweger and Mike Kelley on Deconstructing Fate and Consequences in ‘What/If’

  • Variety
Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not yet watched “What/If,” streaming now on Netflix.

Writer and executive producer Mike Kelley’s latest piece of dramatic storytelling is a limited series morality tale that starts with a high-powered, wealthy woman named Anne Montgomery (Renee Zellweger) offering Lisa, a young woman with a startup (Jane Levy), the investment she needs — if she gives her one night with her husband Sean (Blake Jenner). What goes on during that evening will be protected by a non-disclosure agreement, and if he breaks the terms and shares the details, Anne will take control of the company. But that is just the tip of the iceberg for “What/If.”

While Kelley says the 1993 film “Indecent Proposal” was very much his “jumping off point” for this story, he was inspired by other “social thrillers” of the 1980s and 1990s, including “Fatal Attraction.” Borrowing from a traditional film’s structure,

What/If Creator Reveals the Inspiration Behind Renee Zellweger's Netflix Villain

Summer may not technically start for another month, but Netflix has already given us our first sudsy beach “read” in What/If, a 10-episode social thriller from the mind of Revenge creator Mike Kelley. The twisted series also marks Renee Zellweger‘s major television debut, as she steps into the role of vindictive seductress Anne Montgomery.

“I’ve been thinking about this character for a long time,” Kelley tells TVLine. “She was born out of my slightly unhealthy obsession with all things Mrs. Robinson. That character is so powerful and witty and compelling, but also tragic. The Graduate was my first real movie obsession,

What/If review – Renée Zellweger in deranged gender-flip of Indecent Proposal

Netflix’s absurd new drama doesn’t reinvent the morality tale, but it is tremendous fun

It is my contention that any programme that chooses to demonstrate the bone-deep villainy of its protagonist by having her practise archery in her office is the best programme. All others can go home. I’m not here for your subtle touches, your careful building of characters. Bad people have big offices, and use them to zing arrows at priceless wooden sculptures. Qed, my friends, Qed.

Welcome, then, to Netflix’s What/If, a proudly deranged drama that asks: what if we gender-flipped Indecent Proposal and turned it into a 10-part series starring Renée Zellweger, even though the main part is crying out to be played by the original proposee, Demi Moore? The premise owes so much to Indecent Proposal that the couple about to be torn asunder even remark how much it reminds

TV Review: Renée Zellweger in ‘What/If’ on Netflix

  • Variety
What/If,” Netflix’s new anthology series, tells you what it is from its first moments, as Renée Zellweger delivers an Ayn Rand-ian screed about rejecting social mores. Zellweger builds to a snarl as she decries “lesser people’s moral agendas,” all while puttering through a lavish apartment, pausing to trim a bonsai tree. She’s speaking to no one, or to her public — her declamations, we see in short order, end up published as a manifesto. She’s also underlining the story’s themes for the audience — literally, as she grabs a pen at monologue’s end to scrawl and draw a line under the words “at any cost.”

This is, then, the sort of show that explains exactly what its ideas are before it gets started — and that does so through a juicily overwritten rant delivered by an Oscar-winning actress as she practices horticulture. “What/If” occupies a curious place on Netflix,
