The Hollywood Reporter is exclusively reporting that Miles Teller is in talks to star opposite Shailene Woodley in STX Entertainment’s survival thriller Adrift.
The film is based on the true story of a woman who sets off on a sailing trip to Tahiti with her fiance but, following a massive storm, finds herself alone at sea with her boat in ruins. The story, which jumps between the couple’s romance in flashbacks and the treacherous present, follows her attempts to save herself and the man she loves on a 1,500 mile journey.
If a deal is made, Teller will be playing the role of the husband and this would mark the fifth film that Teller and Woodley will have worked on together, from The Spectacular Now back in 2013, to the Divergent films. The script has been written by Aaron and Jordan Kandell, the duo that penned the script for Disney’s Moana, with Baltasar Kormákur directing the film and he’s no stranger to survival films having directed 2015’s Everest. The Kandell’s are also producing the project which is set to begin filming in the summer.
There is no cinematic release date as of yet for Adrift.
