Deep Blue Sea 2 was announced back in June of last year, and many fans were pretty excited. It was said early on that it was straight to home video, but I mean, the first film wasn’t exactly anything more than something “fun” to watch. The first trailer for the new film is here – and it essentially looks to be similar to the first one. Stupid fun:
Plot details aren’t really known about the film, but if it’s anything like the cancelled sequel from 1999, we can expect it to be pretty insane. Director of that film, Jack Perez, revealed some details of his cancelled film, saying:
“What they were interested in was keeping the theme of shark experimentation. The script is about this scientific research ship that is seized by Somali pirates, and a team of Navy SEALs have to go in and take them out. The whole ship is basically a gigantic floating laboratory, with a maze of tunnels that the sharks can travel through that open up into tanks. My thinking was that this was Sgt. Rock vs. sharks, so I developed this platoon kind of based on my favorite Sgt. Rock characters. To a certain degree, it was similar to what they did in Predator; there were definitely echoes of that sort of motley group.”
“On paper, it seems absolutely comical, but my intention was to make these sharks Frankenstein-style mutations that were tragic and violent. With the exception of the quipping between the soldiers, it wasn’t going to be played for humor.”
The plot line for the new film:
A brilliant billionaire named Carl Durant is experimenting on bull sharks, which soon rebel to cause havoc for a group of scientists.
The film is set to be released on Blu-Ray/DVD in July.
