According to Apple, the studio has landed the rights to “The Gorge,” the upcoming “high-action, genre-bending love story” from director Scott Derrickson. And joining Miles Teller in the cast is none other than Anya Taylor-Joy. Any sort of plot details are being kept under wraps but the description of a “high-action, genre-bending love story” is definitely intriguing.
Taylor-Joy is currently in the middle of production on the highly-anticipated prequel film, “Furiosa,” which sees her take on the title role. She’s also known for her performances in “The Witch,” “The Northman,” “Split,” “Last Night in Soho,” and “The Queen’s Gambit.” The latter of which earned her a Primetime Emmy nomination.

Miles Teller has been in a number of high-profile films over the years. However, all anyone can talk about now is his role as Rooster in “Top Gun: Maverick,” which is the biggest film of the year and has made Teller one of the most in-demand stars in Hollywood.
Derrickson is coming off the success of his new horror film, “The Black Phone.” He’s probably best known as the filmmaker behind the first “Doctor Strange” film, as well as his horror franchise, “Sinister.”
A release date for “The Gorge” has yet to be announced.
