Kornel Mundruczo (White God) will direct the MGM movie, while Landis will produce alongside David Goyer and Addictive Pictures. Production is slated to start early next year.
Cooper will play a former astronaut who’s hired to lead an expedition to the deepest part of the ocean, where supernatural activity lurks.
Gadot will dive into Deeper in between doing press for the November release of Justice League and filming Wonder Woman 2 next summer. The first film grossed nearly $819 million worldwide, and was the highest-grossing summer movie at the domestic box office.
Gadot is represented by WME, and her deal for Deeper was first reported by Deadline.
