No official plot yet, but it's said to revolve around Revolutionary War Naval hero John Paul Jones -- except with sea monsters.
Bradley Cooper (in talks)
- Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, Limitless) is in talks to star.
- Directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (House of Wax remake, Orphan, Unknown).
- Robert Zemeckis was originally going to direct, which would've marked his return to live-action film (last being Cast Away) after helming animated pictures such as The Polar Express, Beowulf, and A Christmas Carol.
- Writer Brian Helgeland also scripted films like Highway to Hell, L.A. Confidential, Mystic River and most recently, Robin Hood.
- John Paul Jones -- the character which the film is based -- was a real life naval fighter during the American Revolutionary War.
- It's said that this is "basically a retelling of the John Paul Jones story, but inserting a sea monster into the mix."
- Based on an concept by Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull.
