Summit picks up 'The Impossible' with Ewan McGregor, Ewan at the White House Correspondents' Dinner

Summit Entertainment has picked up the worldwide rights to Juan Antonio Bayona's The Impossible, which is set to star Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts. Shooting is scheduled to begin in the summer, most likely in August.
Bayona reteams with the writer of that film, Sergio G. Sanchez, for a drama based around a true story set during and after the Indian Ocean Tsunami in 2004. The budget's set around $45 million, and, while exact plot details are under wraps, we found a Spanish article that states that "The aim of Bayona... is to recreate this natural disaster through a script with hints of horror and mystery and large doses of science fiction."
