Looks like Deep Blue Sea 3 is real and swimming our way soon as today we got word that the powers that be over at the MPAA have officially slapped the sequel with an R-rating via the MPAA for “some violence, bloody images, and language.”
When we first heard about back in August, the movie was set to swim straight to Netflix – but that has yet to be confirmed by Warner Bros. Neither has the release date, which IMDB has listed for July 28.

Deep Blue Sea 3 is directed by John Pogue (Quarantine 2, The Quiet Ones) from a screenplay by Dirk Blackman (Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans). It stars Nathaniel Buzolic, Emerson Brooks, Siya Mayola, Brashaad Mayweather, and Bren Foster.
Here’s the synopsis via IMBd:
Dr. Emma Collins and her team are spending their third summer on the island of Little Happy studying the effect of climate change on the great white sharks who come to the nearby nursery every year to give birth. Along with the last two inhabitants of this former fishing village, their peaceful life is disrupted when a “scientific” team led by her ex-boyfriend and marine biologist Richard show up looking for three bull sharks who we soon learn aren’t just any bull sharks.
