I think the last ‘erotic thriller’ I watched was ‘Wild Things‘ and I watched that A LOT when I was a teenager, specifically that one scene. You know what scene. Don’t act like you don’t know.
Beyond that, I don’t have much knowledge in the erotic thriller space, but there appears to be a new one brewing in Hollywood.
According to multiple reports, Ben Affleck and Ana De Armas are in talks to star in the erotic thriller, Deep Water. Filmmaker Adrian Lyne is set to direct this project.
Based on a 1957 novel of the same name by Patricia Highsmith. The story follows a small-town couple in a loveless marriage in which the wife is allowed to take lovers as long as she does not desert the family. However, complications arise when the husband takes credit for the unsolved murder of one of the former lovers.
Sounds pretty interesting to me. I’m sold. If Affleck and Armas agree to a deal, filming could start as soon as November.
No word on a potential release date, but if filming does begin in November, you have to imagine the film could be released Fall 2020.
We’ll keep you posted.
