Russell Mulcahy Leaves Bait 3D. Heads for Calmer Waters.
More director shifting going on, and sadly this one kind of stings. We've been reporting for a while now that Russell Mulcahy was hard at work to make his shark film Bait 3D a reality, but that's just not to be.
According to the Caleel Agency (and confirmed by us), Kimble Rendall will replace Russell Mulcahy as the director for Arclight Films' Bait 3D. On the casting side of the fence Jesse Spencer was originally attached to star with previous offers out to both Xavier Samuel (The Loved Ones, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse) and Julian McMahon (Faces in the Crowd, "Nip/Tuck"). No word on if any of this has changed.
"In a sleepy coastal resort community, shoppers at an underground supermarket find themselves terrorized by a crazed bandit when the unimaginable occurs...
A monstrous freak tsunami swallows the town.
Now trapped inside a flooded supermarket with an armed maniac and rushing water threatening to entomb them all in a watery grave, the imprisoned band of survivors discover they're not alone. The tsunami has brought some unwanted visitors from the depths. As the waters rise, they must overcome not only the threat of drowning but another threat, just as deadly and far more bloodthirsty ... packs of hungry tiger sharks."
