Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Gal Gadot is being eyed to join Bradley Cooper in MGM's upcoming underwater thriller Deeper.

The Wonder Woman star is in early talks to join the project written by Max Landis (American Ultra and Bright) that is set to be directed by White God helmer Kornel Mundruczo, Deadline reported.

Landis is also producing along with David Goyer and Addictive Pictures. If Gadot signs on to star, production is expected to start in the first quarter of 2018, Variety noted.

Deeper follows the story of a former astronaut (Cooper), as he journeys to the deepest part of the ocean where he finds himself in a psychological and physical fight against mysterious forces.

Gadot is coming off the success of Wonder Woman and will be seen as the superhero again in Justice League, out Nov. 17, and a sequel to Wonder Woman -- which is set for release on Dec. 13, 2019.
