This time they’re smarter and faster…

We told you earlier this year that the recent resurgence in shark attack flicks – thanks, The Shallows and 47 Meters Down! – has paved the way for a years-later sequel to Deep Blue Sea, which filmed in Cape Town, South Africa last summer. Lekker Slaapstad!

Deep Blue Sea 2, directed by Darin Scott (Tales from the Hood), shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun (Danielle Savre) is invited to consult on a new, top secret project run by pharmaceutical billionaire Carl Durant (Michael Beach). When science meddles with the time-tested process of nature and nurture, the outcome can be deadly.

The first trailer is here, boasting a Blu-ray release in the near future. While it’s pegged as a sequel, the footage looks nearly identical to the first film… Ja, dit doen!
