From The Shallows to the Sharknado franchise and the recent hit 47 Meters Down, shark films are making one hell of a comeback and it’s not stopping there. Open Water 3 AKA Open Water: Cage Dive has now gone in to production and a poster has been released, too.
We don’t want to focus too much on the poster – and the plot’s – similarities to 47 Meters Down, but it’s difficult. Just look at it! Hopefully the film itself will manage to be a bit different and offer some originality, rather than riding on the success of previous shark films.
Cage Dive follows three American tourists making an audition tape of a shark cage dive for a reality TV show. A catastrophic turn of events leaves them stranded in the waters of South Australia surrounded by hungry great white shark.
Cage Dive comes from director Gerald Rascionato and stars Joel Hogan, Josh Potthoff, Megan Peta Hill, Pete Valley, Mark Fell and Christopher Callen.
Lionsgate will release Open Water: Cage Dive on 11th August 2017.
