It's cool if you forgot about this project, because we pretty much did too. While Kevin Macdonald's last feature was 2011's "The Eagle," he hasn't slowed down for a moment, delivering the crowdsourced "Life In A Day" around the same time and "Marley" last year, with his next film "How I Live Now" starring Saoirse Ronan, shot and somewhere on the horizon. And keeping that workflow going, he's already putting together another movie that once again will see him change gears.

It's cool if you forgot about this project, because we pretty much did too. While Kevin Macdonald's last feature was 2011's "The Eagle," he hasn't slowed down for a moment, delivering the crowdsourced "Life In A Day" around the same time and "Marley" last year, with his next film "How I Live Now" starring Saoirse Ronan, shot and somewhere on the horizon. And keeping that workflow going, he's already putting together another movie that once again will see him change gears.

First announced over a year ago, the pieces are coming together on the submarine thriller "Black Sea" -- something Macdonald described as "one of those hard, intelligent B-movies they used to make -- dark, little vicious B-movies” -- and Focus Features have snapped up the worldwide rights, with Jude Law slated to star. So what's it all about? Well, it sounds perfectly pulpy. Law would play an unemployed submarine captain hired by some shady folks to lead an expedition to find a sunken sub supposedly loaded with gold. So he puts together a ragtag crew to take on the gig, and get back at his ex-employers as well. Sounds like a nice tweak on "Treasure Of The Sierra Madre."

Dennis Kelly ("Spooks," "Utopia") is writing the script, Focus will be handling the movie in the market at Cannes, and hopefully it will be rolling soon. [Deadline]
