Deep Water: About The Movie
Deep Water is an upcoming American erotic psychological thriller that is based on the novel by Patricia Highsmith written back in 1957. The novel is one of the most popular erotic novels of its time and went on to become a name that was known by almost every book lover. It was a benchmark for other books to follow and went on to have a fan following that was simply humongous. And now, with the novel being adapted to the movie, fans are going crazy and waiting to see it happen.
The new movie is going to bring Adrian Lyne to the helm after two long decades. The director has not been at the forefront of any movie for a long time and is bound to be looking at a triumphant return with Deep Water. Adrian Lyne is famous for movies like Indecent Proposal and Jacob’s Ladder, and is a very well known name in the industry. And he is finally back after a really long hiatus, bringing the thriller Deep Water to us. There are a lot of expectations riding on Lyne, and it might be a tall order for him. But we are not losing hope, and waiting for him to work his magic.
Two decades is a long time and the face of the cinema has changed within that time. Whether Lyne brings back a nostalgic movie to the audiences or whether he moves ahead with the time is a move that is still unclear and remains to be seen. Whatever the case might be, it is going to be quite interesting either way.
Deep Water: Plot
Coming to the plot of the movie, it is directly going to be adapted from the novel by Patricia Highsmith and is going to remain true to the book. It is an erotic thriller that revolves around the Van Allen couple. Vic Van Allen and Melinda Van Allen have been growing apart and the spark in their relationship is gone. They no longer harbor a love for each other and have given up on each other. But circumstances have other plans and are going to put them in situations that indirectly result in what they don’t want.
Those who are around them strangely start dying and this prompts the couple to start playing games with each other. In a strange mix of insanity and love, they start messing with each other’s minds and rekindle the fire between them. Things get dangerous but neither of them backs down from the challenge and dives in headfirst. The heavy cost that they will have to bear is of no concern to them. And all that matters is what they do together.
Taken directly from the novel, the plot for the movie is quite solid and holds a lot of promise, especially those who are fans of the original book. An authentic movie is one that is really hard to come by, and all hopes are on Deep Water to be that one in a million movie.
Deep Water: Cast
Now this is one of the biggest reasons around the hype for the movie. The movie stars Ben Affleck and Ana De Armas in the main roles as the Van Allen couple. This is particularly interesting because Ben Affleck and Ana De Armas used to be a couple but went their separate ways in an amicable breakup between the two. So it is going to be interesting to see how the chemistry between the former couple shapes up on the reel of an erotic movie. After all, chemistry is a major factor, and theirs is one that is on trial right now.
Other cast members in the film include actress Tracy Letts as Lionel and Rachel Blanchard as Maggie. Lil Rel Howery, Finn Wittrock, Jacob Elordi, Dash Mihok, Kristen Connolly, Jade Fernandez, Michael Braun, and Michael Scialabba all play supporting roles in the cast and are looking to be amazing choices for the film.

Deep Water: Release Date
This is perhaps the most controversial part about Deep Water. The release date for Deep Water has been a subject of so much commotion that it has become almost a futile practice to comment on it. The film was originally meant to be released in November 2020, but things didn’t exactly go down well and the coronavirus pandemic halted the production on the film and brought about big delays. Then, the film was delayed till August 13, 2021, but again the pandemic effects caused the release to be delayed.
Finally, the team has decided on a January 14, 2022 release date for the movie, and things are looking quite good this time. Deep Water is definitely coming, and it is just a matter of time before we will be able to watch it.
