Dueling Narco-Sub Films Planned as Roger Spottiswoode Takes Hyperbaric

It looks as though two dueling films focusing on narco-subs are in the works as Deadline today announced that Roger Spottiswood (Tomorrow Never Dies, Turner and Hooch) has signed on to helm a project called Hyperbaric. The news break not long after last month's word that Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, The Equalizer will be directing 20th Century Fox's long-gestating Narco-Sub.

Narco-subs are real-world drug-running submersible vehicles that are used to transport narcotics (particularly from Colombia to Mexico). Because of their compact size, the subs are able to elude radar.

Hyperbaric, which began as a spec script by Matt Harvey and Dominic Morgan, is said to focus on a crew of four strangers aboard a sub that is being chased by the US Coast Guard. Rick Benattar and Nigel Thomas are set to produce.

Fuqua is no stranger to similarly-themed cinematic showdowns. Last year, he directed Olympus Has Fallen, which managed to beat Roland Emmerich's White House Down at the domestic box office.
