47 Meters Down director Johannes Roberts is heading back into the water for his next film, a big-budget horror movie called The Red Triangle.
According to Deadline, which broke the news, the film “is set in Northern California—famous for its gorgeous beaches, but also known for a particular stretch of ocean that has a bloody reputation—The Red Triangle. Stretching south from Bodega Bay toward San Francisco and jutting out beyond the Farallon Islands and down to Big Sur south of Monterey, the Triangle encompasses around 200 miles of coastline, and is the site of almost half of all recorded great white shark attacks in the United States.”
As for the plot: “When a cruise ship—a massive, floating, fully stocked resort with thousands of passengers—begins to sink in The Red Triangle, the feeding frenzy begins.”
Roberts is directing The Red Triangle from his own script.
“The Red Triangle is going to take shark horror to a whole new level,” he said in a statement. “I cannot wait to work with [Allen Media Group’s Byron Allen] again to terrify audiences like they’ve never been terrified before.”
