Cooper also wrote the script based on an initial version by Brad Inglesby titled The Low Dwellers.

Saldana is Bale’s love interest while Shepard will play Bale’s and Affleck’s uncle. Relativity will distribute in the U.S. LA-based production-financing-sales company Red Granite will handle international sales next month in Cannes. Producers are Appian Way’s Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Killoran, Scott Free’s Ridley Scott, Tony Scott and Michael Costigan plus Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh.
