28 January 2016 4:13 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

U.K. sales banner Embankment has acquired Wim Wenders’ “Submergence,” an epic love story with Oscar-nominated Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) and James McAvoy (“X-Men”) in the run up to Berlin Film Festival.

One of the most buzzed-about projects to be pitched at next month’s European Film Market, “Submergence” is being produced by Cameron Lamb’s Lila 9th Productions with France’s Backup Media (“Still Alice”), Germany’s Neue Road Movies and Spain’s Morena Films.

Vikander is set to star as Danielle, an ocean explorer facing a terrifying, pioneering descent into the Arctic abyss. McAvoy stars as her soulmate James, a contractor held captive by African jihadists. Facing life-or-death situations and separated by thousands of miles, each finds solace in memories of their romance and deep emotional connection to overcome their ordeals.

Penned by Erin Dignam, the screenplay is based on J.M. Ledgard’s New York Times bestseller. »
