Wim Wenders has always worked consistently, but he seems to be on a particularly prolific streak of late. This year alone has seen two of his pictures hit cinemas —his acclaimed Oscar nominated documentary "The Salt Of The Earth," and his far less acclaimed 3D drama "Every Thing Will Be Fine." He's already in post-production on his next film "The Beautiful Days of Aranjuez," and he's got a new picture cooking.

The novel Submergence, by J.M Ledgard, is the latest work from the world of literature to be snapped up for a big screen adaptation, and detail on the independent project is beginning to come together. Academy Award nominee Wim Wenders (Every Thing Will Be Fine) is set to helm the production, while Erin Dignam (The Yellow Handkerchief) will pen the adapted screenplay. In addition, we now have confirmation that Golden Globe nominee James McAvoy (X-Men: Days Of Future Past) is on board for the male lead role.
The novel is a tale of two halves, employing both a dual setting and a flashback technique to depict the plight of two characters connected by a past encounter. James More (McAvoy) is a spy who had been working undercover as a water engineer, but is abducted and held hostage for a lengthy period of time by Al Qaeda operatives. Danielle Flinders »
