Submergence is based on  by the novel by JM Ledgard, and tells the story of James More (McAvoy), a water engineer who is taken hostage in Somalia by Jihadist fighters who suspect that he is a British spy.

Danielle ‘Danny’ Flinders (Vikander) is a bio-mathematician working on a deep sea diving project to support her theory of the origin of life on the planet.

The two had met just a few weeks earlier, in an isolated hotel on the Atlantic coast, where they were both preparing for their dangerous missions. Now worlds apart, unable to reach each other, the film follows Danny as she descends in a submersible to the ocean floor, without even knowing if James is still alive.

According to Screendaily, filming is underway in France before moving to Germany, Spain and Africa.
