The Gorge is an upcoming American romantic action film directed by Scott Derrickson and written by Zach Dean.[1] Starring Miles Teller, Anya Taylor-Joy and Sigourney Weaver, the film is produced by Skydance Media, Lit Entertainment Group, and Crooked Highway. It will be released on Apple TV+.


A new genre-bending film that blends romance with suspenseful sci-fi action, as it follows two elite soldiers who are assigned a mysterious mission: to guard either side of a deep and impenetrable gorge, without knowing what actually lies beneath them.



In December 2020, Zach Dean's spec-script The Gorge was revealed to be on that year's "Black List" of the most-liked unproduced screenplays in Hollywood.[2] In March 2022, Scott Derrickson was set to direct and produce the film.[3] In August, Miles Teller was cast to star, as well as serve as an executive producer.[4] In October, Anya Taylor-Joy joined the cast, and Apple Original Films signed on.[5] Sigourney Weaver was added to the cast in March 2023.[6]

Filming began in March 2023 in London, with production occurring at Warner Bros. Studios, Leavesden.[7]
