Thriller “Deep Water” to Stream on Hulu After Theatrical Release Nixed
Deep Water was pulled from Disney’s theatrical release calendar and will no longer premiere in theaters next January Deep Water, an erotic thriller starring Ana de Armas and Ben Affleck, is heading to streaming after the film was removed from Disney’s theatrical release schedule Thursday. The movie will stream on Hulu — which is majority-owned by The Walt Disney Company — in the U.S., and is expected to stream on Amazon Prime Video overseas, Deadline reports. The outlet also shared that Deep Water is landing on streaming amidst a “feeble theatrical marketplace” for “adult fare,” citing West Side Story‘s disappointing weekend opening. Deep Water was initially set to premiere in theaters Jan. 14, 2022. The film has not yet been given an official streaming release date. Affleck, 49, and de Armas, 33, star in Deep Water as married couple Vic and Melinda Van Allen. The Allens stay in their passionless marriage by striking up affairs on the side, all while the people close to them begin to turn up dead. The film is based on the 1957 Patricia Highsmith novel of the same name and comes from Fatal Attraction director Adrian Lyne. Deep Water also stars Tracy Letts, Lil Rel Howery, Rachel Blanchard, Finn Wittrock and Jacob Elordi.
