Director Alistair Legrand’s shark thriller Tiburon has just snagged its main cast which will be lead by Scrubs and Oz the Great and Powerful star and Garden State writer-director Zach Braff.
Based on a script by Jonathan WC Mills (Nothing Left to Fear), the story centers on a young family trapped on top of a camper van stranded on a flooded tidal basin within sight of the beach. They must decide whether to face down a sadistic fugitive or flee through shark-infested waters.
I assume the title comes from the town in California.
Other cast includes along with Paula Patton (Mirrors, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol) and Rupert Friend (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, Hitman: Agent 47).
Screen Daily reports that Mills will produce the flick along with Tom Butterfield and Harry White.
The film is expected to start shooting in South Africa this spring.
