Jared Leto and Darren Aronofsky, who worked together on Requiem for a Dream, are set to re-team for an adaptation of seafaring supernatural horror Adrift.

Leto will star and Aronofsky will direct the adaptation of a short story of the same name by Koji Suzuki, the writer behind The Ring.

The logline reads: "In the dead calm of the open sea, a fishing boat discovers an abandoned yacht with a strange distress call. A deckhand agrees to take lone control of it while it's towed into port, but he soon discovers why the rest of his more experienced crew members call it a 'Ghost Ship.'"

Jason Blum is set to produce via his Blumhouse banner, along with Paradox's Leto and Emma Ludbrook, who brought the story to Aronofsky and Blum. Carla Hacken will also produce.

Distribution has yet to be set.

Leto stars in Warner Bros.' feature The Little Things, out tomorrow, and also has Sony Marvel spin-off Morbius coming up.
