Cave-Diving 47 Meters Down Sequel Will Be “The Descent Underwater”

Published

on

I hate the water. I hate sharks. I strongly dislike caves. Looks like director Johannes Roberts’ (The Strangers: Prey at Night) sequel to 47 Meters Down is going to be just my cup of tea.

Yes, 48 Meters Down will be a cave-diving movie about underwater spelunkers who meet the end of their respective asses at the jaws of cave-dwelling sharks. And I have zero sympathies for the lot of them. That is what you get.

And if all of that nonsense wasn’t enough to get your butt into the safety of a theater seat, then maybe director Johannes Roberts’ recent comments to Daily Dead regarding the film will seal the deal. Roberts basically said his new film will be Neil Marshall’s The Descent underwater.

Now, I get to go off and basically do The Descent underwater,” he told the site. “It’s going to be really cool and terrifying. I learned how to cave dive while I did 47 Meters Down, and I remembered when I did it, I came out and I was like, “If we ever do a sequel, that’s where we’re doing it,” because it’s the most terrifying thing I’ve ever done in my life.”

I’m sold. Say no more. What do you think of this sequel? Let us know below!

The sequel is directed by Johannes Roberts from a script he co-wrote with Ernest Riera. James Harris, Mark Lane, Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones are producing.

Synopsis:

48 Meters Down takes place in the backpacking mecca of Brazil, against the backdrop of the country’s vibrant culture, party atmosphere and beautiful beaches. A group of five girls from different backgrounds and countries are united by their lust for life and adventure in the coastal metropolis of Recife. Looking to get off the well-worn tourist trail, they hear about a hidden underwater ruin from a local guide and seize the opportunity to discover their own Atlantis beneath the turquoise waves. Unbeknownst to them, the caves where the forgotten city lies are not completely uninhabited, and as they swim deeper into the submerged labyrinth of caves they enter the territory of the deadliest shark species in the ocean.

New Gremlins a Reboot, Prequel, or Sequel?

Published

on

What’s the deal with Gremlins 3? Recently the original film’s director Joe Dante told us that the film will be a prequel and today we have news that it will be a complete reboot.

What gives? Well, Metro USA spoke to Columbus recently and the man dropped some interesting info on the (possible) upcoming Gremlins film.

Gremlins we are actively talking about that. So that’s what I am working on with my production company 1492 Pictures.”

He then adds: “It will almost definitely be a reboot.”

I’m thinking Chris Columbus knows what he’s talking about considering he’s not only producing this new movie but he was also the screenwriter on the 1984 classic. Who do you believe? Does it even matter? Reboot, prequel, or sequel, I know I’ll be there opening night.

What about you? Do you care what studios call the film as long as it has Gizmo in it? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Synopsis:

A gadget salesman is looking for a special gift for his son and finds one at a store in Chinatown. The shopkeeper is reluctant to sell him the “mogwai” but sells it to him with the warning to never expose him to bright light, water, or to feed him after midnight. All of this happens and the result is a gang of gremlins that decide to tear up the town on Christmas Eve.

Ash vs Evil Dead Has Been Cancelled; Bruce Campbell Tweets Emotional Message

Published

on

It’s looking like lackluster ratings have nailed the final coffin in STARZ’ “Ash vs Evil Dead” as the series has been cancelled. Taking to Twitter, Bruce Campbell gave an emotional message that pays respect not just to the series but also to the history of the Evil Dead franchise itself.

Ash Vs Evil Dead has been the ride of a lifetime. Ash Williams was the role of a lifetime. I will always be grateful to Starz, Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and our tireless fans for the opportunity to revisit the franchise that launched our careers. Thank you!” Williams wrote, attaching an image of himself as Ash with the message, “Ash has left the building.


Starring Campbell alongside Ray Santiago, Dan DeLorenzo, and Lucy Lawless, “Ash vs Evil Dead” followed the exploits of Ash Williams as he fought the Deadite hordes decades after his original encounters. Crass, violent, over-the-top, and an absolute blast, it’s a damn shame that the series is coming to an end, especially now that we’ve met Ash’s daughter, Brandy, and a fourth season may very well have allowed Raimi and Co. to pass the torch along to a new generation.
