Johannes Roberts returned to the director's chair for the upcoming sequel to 47 Meters Down. Titled 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, the film was originally planned to hit theaters this June, following in the footsteps of the first film back in 2017.
We've learned today that Entertainment Studios has bumped the film to a later August 16th, 2019 release.
We assume that this shift happened because of the recent moving of the third Annabelle film to a June 28th release date. Entertainment Studios most likely wants to avoid competing with the box office giant.
"The film will tell the story of four teens diving in a ruined underwater city, who quickly find themselves in a watery hell as their adventure turns to horror when they learn they are not alone in the submerged caves. As they swim deeper into the claustrophobic labyrinth of caves they enter the territory of the deadliest shark species in the ocean."
47 Meters Down: Uncaged stars Brec Bassinger, Sophie Nélisse (The Book Thief), John Corbett ("Sex And The City"), Nia Long ("Empire"), Corinne Foxx, Sistine Stallone, Brianne Tju ("Scream" TV series), Davi Santos (Polaroid) and Khylin Rhambo ("Teen Wolf")
Foxx and Stallone, the daughters of Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone, respectively, will be making their film debuts.
