Paxton, Milligan, McPhee Jump The “Shark”

Sara Paxton (“The Last House on the Left”), Dustin Milligan (“The Messengers”) and Katharine McPhee (“The House Bunny”) have joined the cast of the action-thriller “Shark Night 3D” for Sierra Pictures and Incentive Filmed Entertainment reports Variety.

The story revolves around seven people who spend a weekend at a lake house in Louisiana. When their vacation quickly becomes a nightmare of hellish shark attacks, unheard of in freshwater lakes, they soon discover that the sharks are part of a sick, greedy plan on the part of several locals.

Chris Carmack, Alyssa Diaz, Joel David Moore and Sinqua Walls also star. David R. Ellis (“The Final Destination 3D,” “Final Destination 2”) helms the project from a script by Jesse Studenberg and Will Hayes.

Chris Briggs, Lynette Howell and Mike Fleiss are producing and shooting begins later this month in Shreveport, Louisiana.
