This summer the sharks are circling. We’ve got The Meg coming and now news has come that Great White swimming towards us.
Altitude Film Sales has snagged the international rights to the movie about a killer Great White and will take it to Cannes this week, Deadline is reporting.
“Michael Boughen’s (Killer Elite) screenplay charts how a blissful tourist trip quickly turns into a nightmare when five passengers on a seaplane become stranded miles from shore. In a desperate bid for survival, the group tries to make it to land before they either run out of supplies or are taken by the man-eating sharks lurking just beneath the surface.”
Directed by Martin Wilson, Great White is from producer Michael Robertson, who is no stranger to aquatic horror, he also produced 2010’s The Reef. Neal Kingston (Nerve), Chris Veerhuis (Breath) is also producing with Robert Slaviero serving as executive producer. Filming is set to begin later this year.
