A bidding war is underway for 'Deeper.'

Just weeks after causing a bidding war with his spec script Bright, Max Landis has another script that is causing a stir.

Deeper, a contained deep-sea thriller written by Landis, has Bradley Cooper attached to star and Kornel Mundruczo, the European helmer behind White God, attached to direct.

While not on the level of the Bright bidding war, which saw the script’s price tag reach $4 million and the package being sold for $90 million, Deeper has numerous companies putting in bids.

Bold, Oddlot, Open Road, Fox Searchlight and Paramount are said to be in running for the script, which tells of a man on a deep-sea dive exploring a newly discovered trench but soon finds himself afoul of a mysterious and dangerous force.
