‘Into the Storm’ Director Enlists in Navy SEAL Thriller ‘The Lake’ (EXCLUSIVE)

EuropaCorp has hired “Into the Storm” director Steven Quale for its underwater action-thriller “The Lake.”

The upcoming project, written by EuropaCorp topper Luc Besson and “The Equalizer” screenwriter Richard Wenk, focuses on a group of Navy SEALs attempt to solve a long-forgotten mystery while uncovering an immense treasure hidden in a lake in war-torn Serbia.

Quale, who directed WB’s $152 million-grosser “Into the Storm,” is no stranger to underwater projects. He co-directed “Aliens of the Deep” with James Cameron and also worked with him on “Titanic” and “The Abyss.”

EuropaCorp’s slate includes “The Transporter Legacy” and recent Toronto film Festival acquisition “Big Game.” It announced in February that it was forming the RED joint distribution venture for the U.S. with Ryan Kavanaugh’s Relativity.

Quale is represented by Resolution and Principato/Young.
