Focus Features and Film4 have kicked off the UK production of director Kevin Macdonald's maritime thriller "Black Sea." Starring Jude Law as an intrepid sea captain, the film sails into theaters in 2014. Here's the official synopsis:

'Black Sea' centers on a rogue submarine captain (Law) who, after being laid off from a salvage company, pulls together a misfit crew to go after a sunken treasure rumored to be lost in the depths of the Black Sea. As greed and desperation take control onboard their claustrophobic vessel, the increasing uncertainty of the mission causes the men to turn on each other to fight for their own survival.

Law's international costars include Grigoriy Dobrygin, Konstantin Khabenskiy ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy"), Scoot McNairy ("Argo"), Ben Mendelsohn ("The Place Beyond the Pines"), Michael Smiley ("Kill List") and David Threlfall ("Nowhere Boy").

Macdonald previously directed Channing Tatum in "The Eagle" (2011), Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams and Helen Mirren in "State of Play" (2009) and Forest Whitaker in "The Last King of Scotland," whose performance as Idi Amin won him an Oscar in 2007. In 2012, Macdonald helmed the Bob Marley doc "Marley."
