JESSICA Alba has enjoyed something of a prolific year when you
consider the high-profile movies she has been in.
Having mesmerised as a lasso-wielding stripper in Robert Rodriguez's
ultra-hip, Sin City, she is next
due to appear in a snug super-hero outfit for The
And if that wasn't enough, she will also be donning a bikini
in the upcoming Into The Blue, a modern take on Peter Benchley's
The Deep, co-starring Paul (2
Fast, 2 Furious) Walker.
Set in the Cayman Islands, the sea-based thriller finds Walker
and Alba as a treasure-hunting couple whose end up in peril following
the discovery of a sunken wreck, which places them at odds with
The film is directed by John Stockwell (of Blue Crush, Crazy/Beautiful
fame) and co-stars Scott Caan, Josh Brolin and Ashley Scott.
The trailer suggests plenty of high-ocean thrills and spills,
as well as gratuitous shots of tanned bodies (both sexes) splashing

But they did hit it off, allowing Walker to concentrate on getting
used to some of his more dangerous co-stars - sharks.
Walker went on to reveal that he had to spend a lot of time around
the ocean's fiercest predators, touching them and hitting them
on the nose.
But the time he spent around them increased his respect for the
creatures - which was already high, given his off-screen passion
Walker, too, has been busy of late, having recently completed
the ensemble comedy Noel, alongside Susan Sarandon, Alan Arkin
and Penelope Cruz.
Into The Blue is scheduled to open in US theatres on September
30 and will follow in the UK sometime thereafter.
