The script is being written by Simon Boyes and Adam Mason who previously wrote the upcoming Not Safe for Work. Details on the story are few, but according to THR the story is similar to that of the 1989 thriller Dead Calm but in space. In the original 1963 novel by Charles Williams, a married couple traveling by boat pick up a shipwrecked man at sea who turns out to be a deranged killer.
Bryan Brucks is produced the project with Stefan Sonnenfeld. Sarah Perlman Bremner is executive producing.
