Warner Bros. Pictures Inc. and IMAX Corporation have announced that they will embark on a third original IMAX(R) 3D co-production for release to IMAX(R) theatres in 2009.
WWith the working title “Deep Sea-quel,” the IMAX 3D picture will be made by the same team behind the highly successful co-production of Deep Sea 3D, which has already grossed $40 million in IMAX theatres around the world since it premiered in March 2006.
Deep Sea-quel will offer a uniquely inspirational and entertaining way to explore the impact that global climate change has had on ocean wilderness.
The new IMAX 3D adventure will transport moviegoers to some of the most exotic and isolated under sea locations on earth, including Southern Australia, New Guinea and others in the Indo-Pacific region and allow them to experience face-to-face encounters with some of the most mysterious and stunning creatures of the sea.
The picture will be shot by award-winning Director/Cinematographer Howard Hall, produced by Toni Myers, executive produced by Graeme Ferguson, and produced for Howard Hall Productions by Michele Hall. In addition to last year’s Deep Sea 3D, Hall, Ferguson and Myers were all part of the accomplished filmmaking team behind IMAX’s first underwater 3D adventure, Into The Deep, which has grossed more than $70 million since its 1991 release.
