I love shark movies [who doesn't] and the 1999 film Deep Blue Sea is one of the best to this day.
I reported on a sequel to Deep Blue Sea that was in the works a few months back and today I have news that filming was completed over the summer in Cape Town, South Africa.
Deep Blue Sea 2 was directed by Darrin Scott, director of Tales From the Hood, and stars Michael Beach, Danielle Savre, Rob Mayes, Darron Meyer, Nathan Lynn and Kim Syster. It's set to premier on SyFy Channel in 2018. The film has been rated R for “creature violence and gore, and for language.”
We will keep you updated on the film's premier date when it's announced.
“The plot kicks off with shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun invited to consult on a top-secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant (Beach). Calhoun is shocked to learn that the company is using the unpredictable and highly aggressive bull sharks as its test subjects. You can probably guess where this goes next, and Warner Bros. teases some “personality” from the sharks that’ll be menacing these hapless humans.”
“We are a true sequel. We wanted to keep to the spirit of Deep Blue Sea and why people love it,” Matt Bierman, creative executive for Warner Bros, recently said. “The research that was used on the sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2 comes from the mythology and story line of the first movie. We have given the lead shark a personality and hope the fans will embrace that as it really helps the story telling and the narrative in a way that first one didn’t. Deep Blue Sea 2 has a slightly slower build but once the rubber band snaps things go boom really quickly!”
