Deadline – STXinternational has boarded international distribution on Chris Evans-starrer The Red Sea Diving Resort, in what becomes a hot title for the upcoming AFM. STX will also directly distribute the Gideon Raff-directed drama in the UK and Ireland. The story is based on one of the most remarkable rescue missions in history.

Haley Bennett, Alessandro Nivola, Greg Kinnear, Michiel Huisman, Michael K Williams and Ben Kingsley also star.
