Moviehole learned the sequel is shooting in Cape Town at the moment. Darin Scott (House Party: Tonight’s the Night)is directing Michael Beach, who’s in next year’s Aquaman, in the sequel.While not as exciting as the concept of weaponized sharks,
Deep Blue Sea 2 is about a character named Dr. Klaus Van Etten who experiments on Bulldog sharks, despite protests from Misty and her gang of marine experts. Huge surprise: the Sharks get set free and wreak havoc. And really, that’s all the set-up you need, right?
Don’t expect any cameos from the cast members that survived the first movie. While the canceled iteration of the Deep Blue Sea sequel was at Warner Bros., SyFy – who have done very well with their Sharknado movies – is producing the sequel. They did the same for the Lake Placid sequel a few years back, although we’re still waiting on another sequel for that series.
