The film is based on Patricia Highsmith's novel of the same name and examines the twisted mind-games Vic and Melinda play with each other after Vic gives his wife his blessing to have extra-marital affairs in order to avoid a divorce.

Deep Water was originally intended to be released in theaters on November 13, 2020 but because of the COVID-19 pandemic it was delayed to August 13, 2021 and again to January 14, 2022.

However, on December 9, 2021 Disney announced it had removed the film from its theatrical releases in 2022, and said it would be released on streaming instead.

Deep Water will debut in the U.S. exclusively on Hulu and will be available on Prime Video on the same day internationally.

Affleck and de Armas are joined in the cast by Finn Wittrock, Tracy Letts, Lil Rel Howery, Dash Mihok, Jacob Elordi and Rachel Blanchard, amongst others.

Film fans might know Deep Water best as the set where Affleck and de Armas met and shortly thereafter began dating. The Knives Out star confirmed they were an item on social media in April 2020, per People, but it was reported they had split in January 2021.

At the time a source told People: "Ben is no longer dating Ana. She broke it off. Their relationship was complicated. Ana doesn't want to be Los Angeles-based and Ben obviously has to since his kids live in Los Angeles."

Affleck has since rekindled his romance with Jennifer Lopez, who he first dated from 2002 to 2004.

Lyne spoke about Affleck and de Armas' romance in an interview with The Independent, saying: "On any movie when your actors fall in love, you just pray they don't fall out of love before the end of filming."

He added that the two co-stars had "a sweetness between them but with an edge" while working together on set.

Lyne, who also directed Indecent Proposal and Flashdance, described Deep Water to the publication as "a very bizarre movie" adding that it was "certainly the strangest that I've done."

Deep Water will be available to stream online in the U.S. on Hulu on Friday, March 18, and it will be released internationally on Prime Video.
