Oscar winner Jared Leto is set to re-team with his Requiem for a Dream filmmaker Darren Aronofsky for Blumhouse’s Adrift.

The supernatural horror movie is an adaptation of a short story of the same name by Koji Suzuki, the writer behind The Ring, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Aronofsky, known for movies such as Black Swan, The Fountain and mother!, will direct the movie from a script that he will pen with Luke Dawson.

“In the dead calm of the open sea, a fishing boat discovers an abandoned yacht with a strange distress call. A deckhand agrees to take lone control of it while it’s towed into port, but he soon discovers why the rest of his more experienced crew members call it a ‘Ghost Ship’,” the official logline read.

Blumhouse’s Jason Blum will produce the movie along with Leto and Emma Ludbrook through the actor’s production company Paradox.

Leto, who won an Oscar for best supporting actor for Dallas Buyers Club, currently features in Warner Bros’ Little Things, co-starring Denzel Washington and Rami Malek.

The actor is also headlining Sony Pictures’ Morbius, which will debut worldwide in January 2022.
