Open Water Duo Swim to Paramount

ON

Untitled thriller in the works

Open Water‘s Chris Kentis and Laura Lau may be heading to dry land but they’re plunging into the depths of the dark human psyche in a new thriller they’ve got set up at Paramount Vantage.

Filming begins in early ’08.

Right now, there’s not title, but the film follows a woman who “is arrested for a crime she didn’t commit and plunged into a state of confusion and psychological terror as she defends herself.”

Kentis and Lau will echo the duties they pulled on their 2003 shark-infested indie flick “Water,” with the former writing and directing and Lau producing.
