Zachary Levi Joins Survival Thriller ‘Not Without Hope’

Zachary Levi

Zachary Levi is signing on to star in the upcoming survival thriller Not Without Hope.

Levi, who stars in the upcoming Shazam! Fury of the Gods, will be tackling the lead role in the movie. The film’s story is based on the novel of the same name authored by Nick Schuyler and Jere Longman. And it will be directed by Joe Carnahan, best known for directing 2006’s Smokin’ Aces.

Not Without Hope, which is based on a true story, follows best friends Schuyler (Levi) and Will Bleakley, as well as NFL players Marquis Cooper and Corey Smith. The group leaves Florida for a day trip at a fishing spot 70 miles out into the Gulf of Mexico, and chaos soon sets in.

When a severe storm heads their way, a trapped anchor causes their boat to capsize. The four friends are violently thrown into the freezing cold water. And the US Coast Guard’s rescue mission is thwarted by the storm’s ferocity. Thus, the group must fight to survive in a test of teamwork and endurance.

Zachary Levi Weighs in on Not Without Hope

“I am truly honored to be part of this deeply moving project. ‘Not Without Hope’ is a tragic true story of loss and courage that’s important to share.” Zachary Levi, 42, says.

Joe Carnahan, who also serves as a producer on the film, also notes, “Nick Schuyler’s grueling trial at sea and his ultimate survival is a deeply inspiring tale of determination and perseverance. But we have a much greater responsibility with this movie as it will hopefully serve as a lasting memorial to the men who lost their lives alongside him during that terrible ordeal.”

“We have to honor their final sacrifice and never lose sight of the larger moral obligation we have as filmmakers with ‘Not Without Hope’.” Carnahan adds.

Not Without Hope is still in the early phases right now. We’ll keep you posted as more news on the project surfaces.
