Tim Daly, Mario van Peebles, Pretty Little Liars’ Cody Christian and pop singer-turned-actress Willa Ford have joined the cast of Submerged, an indie thriller that began production this week with Steven C. Miller in the director’s chair.

The quartet join the already cast Talulah Riley (In a World…), Rosa Salazar (Parenthood), Caleb Hunt (Days of Our Lives), Giles Matthey (True Blood), Jonathon Bennett (Cheaper by the Dozen 2) and Denzel Whitaker (Warrior) in the movie, which is shooting in Los Angeles.

The script, by Scott Milam, sees a limo ride home from a party turning into a terrifying ordeal for a group of college kids. A young woman and her friends have been targeted by a ring of vengeful kidnappers and must do everything they can to survive after their limo is forced off the road and plunged into a canal.

Brad Kaplan and Tiffany Kuzon of Evolution Entertainment are producing.

R. Andru and Will Clevinger are co-producing. Cassian Elwes and Robert Odgen Barnum are exec producing as are Cissy Guidry and Lainie Guidry
