Sarah Scott has been cast as the female lead in feature film DESPERATE WATERS alongside Matthew Lawrence

Sarah Scott is playing the leading female role in 'Desperate Waters', a psychological thriller set on sailboat in the Pacific Ocean. Production started last week in Los Angeles. Scott is playing Karen, a charming vagabond looking for a little more than adventure out at sea.

Matthew Lawrence and Jeffrey Druce star alongside Scott in this independent feature film, penned by Druce, which was inspired by Roman Polankski's first feature film, 'Knife In the Water'.  

Christopher Roosevelt and Tien Pham are producing. Scott originally worked with Pham in her first feature film, 'Haunted Boat'. 

The pic involves a newly widowed older gentlemen named James who is embarking on a sailing trip from Los Angeles to Hawaii. A memento to his late wife. He employs Karen and Mike, an eager young couple, to be his crew after posting a flyer up at the marina.  Shortly after setting sail on his luxurious boat, the chemistry of the three sailors begins to shift, as does their original motivations.
