Mike Nichols getting in 'Deep Water'

Posted on

Director Micke Nichols and writer Joe Penhall have been tapped for an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s 1957 novel Deep Water, according to Variety. The book is about “a couple in a loveless marriage [who] hang on through an arrangement whereby the husband permits the wife to take lovers. Suspense builds as those lovers begin dying.” Highsmith, who died in 1995, also wrote Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley.
