Cooper is set to headline sci-fi thriller, Deeper, from a screenplay by Landis. At the helm will be Hungarian filmmaker Kornel Mundruczo, who last directed the acclaimed canine rebellion thriller, White God, which you should definitely check out right now. Deeper has Cooper playing former astronaut Eddie Breen, who experiences mysterious forces while exploring a newly-discovered oceanic trench that may be the deepest point on the planet.
Landis describes the film as "Birdman + The Shining + Locke + 2001 + The Descent + Miyazaki", which I'm sure he thinks sounds great but it really seems like a fucking a mess. Pick something and go with it, man. [TheWrap]
