Jaume Collet-Serra to Direct Another Shark Movie, This One at Sony

Great White Shark

Sharks, more sharks everywhere. In addition to the giant shark movie Meg finally getting a new director (Eli Roth, details below) another shark movie has found a director. Deadline says Spanish filmmaker Jaume Collet-Serra, of House of Wax, Orphan, Unknown, Non-Stop and Run All Night, is looking at directing a movie called In the Deep at Sony Pictures. While it sounds a lot like that 2003 found footage thriller Open Water, the descriptions compare it to Gravity or 127 Hours meets Jaws – or any shark movie. It's about a young woman surfing on an isolated beach who gets stranded at a buoy off-shore because of a great white shark in the water and she can't swim back. I'm sure there's more to the story, but that is a scary scenario.

As for the other shark movie, it was just revealed a few weeks ago that Eli Roth is taking over directing the giant shark movie Meg at Warner Bros. This is one that has been in development for years, and years, and it's apparently finally happening thanks to a Chinese production deal. That one is based on Steve Alten's novel and is about the Megaladon, "considered one of the largest and most powerful predators in history, [it] can reach a maximum length of 60 feet." That will be filming in China, which is how it got half of its funding. As for In the Deep, no details are available on how soon it'll be ready, but I doubt they'll be pitting these two sharks heads-to-head. Though in Hollywood, you never know what they may be up to. Stay tuned.

    Seriously? Another Jaws ripoff? Or shall I call it an "underwater thriller"? How about making a shark movie where the shark is the hero and we're rooting for it to eat everybody?

    Another Jaws Ripoff? Why is it every time someone makes a Shark film that there is always someone saying it is a Jaws ripoff? It is a shark movie. I like shark movies, good ones that is. Meg has been a novel forever and I am looking forward to watching it, the other sounds very good. Cannot wait.
