David Ellis Bitten By “Shark Night 3D”

David R. Ellis (“The Final Destination”) is tipped to direct the horror feature “Shark Night 3D” says Deadline New York.

Jesse Studenberg and Will Hayes’ script is being kept under wraps but the $28 million creature feature hopes to become “Jaws for a new generation”.

Walt Conti, who created the animatronic creatures in “Snakes on a Plane” and “Deep Blue Sea”, will handle the animatronic sharks in this film.

Mike Fleiss, Chris Briggs and Lynette Howell will produce and shooting kicks off this summer in Louisiana for a release in 2012.

Ellis was recently linked to direct the thriller “Bad Luck” which begins shooting this Fall.
