Earlier this year we reported that a sequel to 1999’s killer shark movie Deep Blue Sea was in the works. The sequel, which filmed this summer in Cape Town, South Africa, has received a 2018 release and an R rating for “creature violence, gore, and for language”. The trailer has swum in (via IGN) and proves once again that playing god with smart sharks is a horrible idea.
Darin Scott (Tales from the Hood) is in the director’s chair for the sequel, simply titled Deep Blue Sea 2. Michael Beach, Rob Mayes, Danielle Savre, Nathan Lynn, and Darron Meyer star. Erik Patterson, Hans Rodionoff, and Jessica Scott penned the script for Syfy.
In the film, “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. Warner Bros. teases some “personality” from the sharks that’ll be menacing these hapless humans.”
 

 
In the original, a team of scientists increased the brain size of three sharks in an attempt to create more tissue to harvest for their use in experiments with the goal of finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease at an isolated research facility. Instead, they become the hunted when the intelligent sharks turn on them. Thomas Jane, Saffron Burrows, Samuel L. Jackson, and LL Cool J starred in the fantastic film.
Deep Blue Sea 2 will be unleashed on July 1, 2018.
