And another big 3D fish is looking to take a bite out of the box office next year (hopefully a bigger one than Piranha 3D did, we’re still pissed about its performance) as the cast for David R. Ellis’ Shark Night 3D is finally fleshing out.
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog Sinqua Walls (“Savage County”), Chris Carmack (The Butterfly Effect: Revelation), Alyssa Diaz (Red Dawn) and Joel David Moore (pictured right; Hatchet, Avatar) have all signed on to chum the waters.
Shark Night 3D revolves around seven men and women who spend a weekend at a lake house in Louisiana’s Gulf area. 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.
Ellis will be directing from a script by Jesse Studenberg and Will Hayes. The animatronic sharks will be created Walt Conti, no stranger to such deadly movie creatures, having also been responsible for the Deep Blue Sea sharks, Free Willy whales, and the titular snake from Anaconda.
The movie is barreling down on an early September start in Louisiana. Look for more soon!
