James McAvoy has attached himself to star in director Wim Wenders’ film Submergence. Based on the book by J.M. Ledgard, it’s a romantic thriller about two lovers “immersed in life-or-death situations and separated by thousands of miles, who find solace in the memories of their intense romance the previous Christmas after a chance encounter on an Atlantic coast beach.” It follows James Moore, who has survived captivity by jihadist fighters in Somalia, and his love Danielle Flinders, who is exploring the depths of the ocean. The book will be adapted by Erin Dignam.

The book was ranked second in New York magazine’s The Best Ten Books of 2013 and also named to the New York Times‘ list of 100 Notable Books of 2013.

The film will be produced by Cameron Lamb through Lila 9th Productions, while Paris-based Backup Media will finance. They are eyeing a late-March production start and plan to shoot in Europe and Africa. UTA Independent Film Group packaged the film and will be representing the U.S. sale.

McAvoy, of course, next stars as Victor Von Frankenstein in Fox’s Victor Frankenstein and recently wrapped production on the studio’s X-Men: Apocalypse. He is filming M. Night Shyamalan’s Split and then will segue to the spy thriller The Coldest City opposite Charlize Theron.

Wenders (Wings Of Desire, Buena Vista Social Club) is just wrapping production on The Beautiful Days Of Aranjuez.

McAvoy is repped by UTA, United Agents and Sloane, Offer. Wenders is repped by WME.

After Joaquin Phoenix passed on the project, director M. Night Shyamalan and producer Jason Blum have acted quickly and found his replacement in James McAvoy.

Sources tell Variety the “X-Men: First Class” star is in talks to star in the helmer’s next untitled supernatural thriller.

Shyamalan would direct with Jason Blum on board to produce through his Blumhouse Pictures banner.

As with any Shyamalan project, plot details are under lock and key, but the project will likely include elements of the supernatural. Given Blum’s involvement, the project’s budget will probably be relatively small, which would be more on par with Shyamalan’s “The Visit,” which has overperformed at the box office since bowing in September, bringing in $53 million and counting in U.S. grosses on a budget of $5 million.

Marc Bienstock also produces, while Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider are on board as exec producers. Production is expected to start this November in Philadelphia. The film is currently not set up at a studio.

McAvoy can be seen next in Fox’s “Victor Frankenstein” as the iconic doctor. He is also set to star in “X-Men: Apocalypse” as Professor X next summer.

Daniel, 26, who plays Igor in the remake of the horror classic Frankenstein tale, says he was left black and blue from fight scenes with the 36-year-old actor.

The film tells the story of brilliant scientist Victor Frankenstein, played by James, and his ill-fated attempt to create a life out of death, assisted by his sceptical sidekick Igor.

“James is a very good physical actor and I’m very good at having the c*** beaten out of me so we worked really well together,” says Daniel.

“Sometimes it is hard to get other actors to really go for it but not James.

“He didn’t hold back and I felt it too! But it worked for those scenes and we remain good buddies.”

You can watch Daniel literally take it on the chin when Victor Frankenstein hits cinemas November 25.

Told from Igor’s perspective, we see the troubled young assistant’s dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man – and the legend – we know today.
