Not to be confused as an actual full-fledged big-budget sequel to Renny Harlin’s cult favourite 1999 killer shark movie, “Deep Blue Sea 2” is one of ‘those’ sequels – a direct-to-video effort done on a fraction of the budget and with whatever cast they could afford.
Yes, it’s in the same vein as “Jarhead 2,” “Starship Troopers 2,” “American Psycho 2,” “Cruel Intentions 2,” etc. and today the trailer has gone online. In the new film, a billionaire is experimenting on bull sharks, which soon rebel to cause havoc for a group of scientists. Michael Beach, Danielle Savre, Rob Mayes and Darron Meyer star.
In the works in one form or another for nearly a decade, Darin Scott (“Something Wicked,” “Dark House”) helms the Cape Town-shot project which is set to hit disc later this year.
