In The Heart Of The Sea is based on the true story of the Essex, a Nantucket whaling ship which “was stalked and ultimately destroyed by a sperm whale in 1820. Stranded thousands of miles from home, the crew struggled to survive; they were lost at sea for ninety days. Eight [survivors] were rescued.”

Written by Charles Leavitt and produced by Joe Roth, Paula Weinstein, Will Ward and Palak Patel, In The Heart of the Sea has sparked interest by DreamWorks, as well as other studios.
