Sullivan Stapleton to Star in ‘The Lake’ for EuropaCorp

“300: Rise of an Empire” star Sullivan Stapleton will star in EuropaCorp’s action-thriller “The Lake,” set to start shooting in April.

Variety reported in September that “Into the Storm” director Steven Quale was attached to the project, written by EuropaCorp topper Luc Besson and “The Equalizer” screenwriter Richard Wenk. The story focuses on a group of Navy SEALs attempting to solve a long-forgotten mystery while uncovering an immense treasure hidden in a lake in war-torn Serbia.

Quale 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.

Stapleton also stars in the Cinemax series “Strike Back.” He is repped by WME and United Management in Australia.

The news was first reported by Deadline.com.
