JAWS 3-D Director Against CGI Reboot – And Here’s Why

Really, it’s only a matter of time before someone reboots Steven Spielberg’s Jaws with a CGI shark. We all know it’s true. But today Jaws Production Designer and Jaws 3-D director Joe Alves (obviously) reveals he’s against the idea.

Alves tells ComicBook.com: “[It’s] not really just about a shark. It’s about those people and their relationship. And then the shark appears. But you take away that and … this is what the brilliant stuff was, was Spielberg’s direction. So I think that was the movie. Duplicating that today, it’s like making Gone With the Wind again.”

Jaws 3-D begins after a young great white shark finds its way into a sea-themed park managed by Calvin Bouchard (Louis Gossett Jr.), workers try to capture it. But the facility’s attempt to keep the shark in captivity has dire consequences: A much larger mother shark appears in search of its offspring. Among those who must battle the angry aquatic killing machine are marine biologist Kathryn Morgan, her co-worker Mike Brody (Dennis Quaid), and a pair of friendly dolphins.

It sports a 10% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: A cheese-soaked ocean thriller with no evident reason to exist, Jaws 3 bellows forth with a plaintive yet ultimately unheeded cry to put this franchise out of viewers’ misery.
