Directed, produced and co-written by Baltasar Kormákur, THE DEEP has been selected as Iceland’s official submission for the 2012 Academy Awards®, in the Best Foreign-Language Film category.

Based on an astonishing true incident that took place on the frigid seas off Iceland in 1984, THE DEEP fashions a modern-day everyman myth about the sole survivor of a shipwreck, whose superhuman will to survive made him both an inexplicable scientific phenomenon and a genuine national hero.

Kormákur most recently directed CONTRABAND, which topped the domestic box office when it opened in January and starred Mark Wahlberg. His next movie, 2 GUNS, stars Denzel Washington and Wahlberg.
