According to Bloody Disgusting, Adrian Lyne’s latest erotic thriller Deep Water, starring Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas, has received a Nov. 13, 2020 release date — which just so happens to be a Friday. So, Friday the 13th… which just adds to the intrigue surrounding the flick. In theaters on that date it will face counter-programming competition from Paramount’s Clifford the Big Red Dog and the second weekend of Marvel’s Eternals, as well as the Netflix release Red Notice starring Dwayne Johnson.
The supporting cast for the film includes Tracy Letts (The Lovers), Rachel Blanchard (Fargo), Lil Rel Howery (Get Out), Jacob Elordi (Euphoria), Kristen Connolly (Cabin in the Woods), Dash Mihok (Ray Donovan) and Jade Fernandez (Little).
Deep Water centers on Vic and Melinda Van Allen (Affleck and de Armas) described as an attractive young married couple whose mind games with each other take a twisted turn when people around them start turning up dead. The couple staves off divorce in a loveless marriage by allowing each to take lovers, but it becomes messy as Highsmith exposed the surface facade of American suburban life.
The film will be directed by Adrian Lyne from a script co-written by Zack Helm (Stranger Than Fiction) and Sam Levinson (Euphoria). It will be executive produced by Garrett Basch and Steven Zaillian along with Entertainment 360’s Guymon Casady, Anthony Katagas and Ben Forkner. Arnon Milchon will also serve as producer.
Lyne last directed the 2002 drama Unfaithful, starring Diane Lane and Richard Gere, and made a reputation with steamy erotic films such as Indecent Proposal, Fatal Attraction, and 9 1/2 Weeks.
