Summit Entertainment takes on “The Impossible”

By Staff

Aside from the “Twilight” business, Summit Entertainment is getting into the Naomi Watts business.

The studio announced its second feature starring the Australian star, “The Impossible,” which also co-stars Ewan McGregor.

Based on a true story during the 2004 Thailand tsunami, “Impossible,” is being directed by Juan Antonio Bayona with a script by Sergio G. Sanchez both of “The Orphanage” fame.

“Impossible” begins shooting in August in Alicante, Spain and will then segue to Thailand in October according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Last week, Summit nabbed the North American rights to Doug Liman’s “Fair Game,” , which also stars Watts as outed CIA op Valerie Plame Wilson.

“Game” is set to debut at the Cannes Film Festival, while Summit will sell international rights to “Impossible” at the market.
