Twohy to helm pic for Dimension

NEW YORK — Matthew Davis has landed a lead role in “Below,” a period WWII thriller directed by David Twohy for Dimension. Twohy wrote the script with Darren Aronofsky and Lucas Sussman.

Davis will topline “Below” as a young officer on an American submarine dispatched to pick up three survivors from a British hospital ship that was apparently sunk by Germans. While the sub plays a cat and mouse game with a German destroyer trying to sink it, the drama takes on an otherworldly tone when strange things begin to occur.

Davis drew notice for starring with Colin Farrell in the Joel Schumacher-directed Vietnam drama “Tigerland” and will next be seen in Michael Bay’s WWII epic “Pearl Harbor.” He comes to “Below” after co-starring with Reese Witherspoon in the Marc Platt-produced MGM comedy “Legally Blonde.”

Twohy’s last directed the cult hit “Pitch Black” and before that “The Arrival.”

The film’s being produced by Aronofsky and Eric Watson, the duo who conceived the 1998 pic “Pi.”
