Getting a Reading on JAWS
While we're all waiting for the stellar documentary The Shark is Still Working (review) to become available for public consumption, why not pick up a book and start reading up on everyone's favorite toothy fish? Get ready for Just When You Thought it Was Safe: A Jaws Companion!
Written by Pat Jankiewicz, the book looks at the birth of the terrifying classic movie. Just When You Thought it Was Safe: A Jaws Companion rounds up all of the victims of the original shark, finds hard-to-locate people, and takes an in-depth look at all the Jaws sequels, getting the inside story and trivia on each film from the cast, crew, and directors.
Learn why the filmmakers of the bloody version of Jaws 2 were replaced, why star Roy Scheider and director Jeanot Szwarc came to blows, what horror remake was derailed by Jaws 3D, and which sequel was supposed to open with a Great White Shark devouring Chief Brody?
The book also tabulates each Jaws shark's stats and body count and covers alternate unmade sequels (such as the infamous National Lampoon's Jaws 3 People 0) as well as other knock-offs like Grizzly, Piranha, The Car, Great White and of course Deep Blue Sea.
