New Line Cinema and Aurora Prods. have teamed to bring the romantic thriller “The Deep Blue” to the bigscreen under the direction of “Free Willy 2” helmer Dwight Little.

New Line expects to get the project into production by early 1998. William Stuart, prexy of Aurora Prods., will produce. New Line chairman of production Sara Risher will exec produce.

James Andrew Miller, who penned “Live From Baghdad” for Penny Marshall, is scripting, based on Stephen Molton’s novel “Brave Talk.”

No talent is attached.

Story is about a young Navy officer on an experimental deep-sea diving vessel who becomes involved with the wife of his commander.

“We’re tremendously excited to be in business with a director like Dwight, whose filmmaking experiences make him the perfect choice to lead this underwater thriller and love story,” Risher said.

Little’s other feature credits include the recent “Murder at 1600.”
