Update: A rep for Spencer writes us telling us he is NOT going to be in the film. Further research on our end showed he was in talks at one point (an Australian production outfit had list him as cast). Bloody Disgusting is behind told that there has been a name attached to Russell Mulcahy’s 3-D shark flick Bait 3D. Aussie local Jesse Spencer has been signed on for a role in the bloody thriller penned by Mulcahy, Shane Krause, and Shayne Armstrong. The pic takes place when a tidal wave strikes the coast of Australia, and the survivors need to escape the sharks that now besiege the town. Spencer can be seen in the Adgar Allan Poe adaptation Tell-Tale and as a regular on Fox’s “House M.D.”. Mulcahy directed the incredible Razorback, along with Highlander, Resident Evil: Extinction and the forthcoming “Teen Wolf” pilot for MTV.“In a sleepy coastal resort community, shoppers at an underground supermarket find themselves terrorized by a crazed bandit when the unimaginable occurs.
A monstrous freak tsunami swallows the town.
Now trapped inside a flooded supermarket with an armed maniac and rushing water threatening to entomb them all in a watery grave, the imprisoned band of survivors discover they’re not alone. The tsunami has brought some unwanted visitors from the depths. As the waters rise they must overcome not only the threat of drowning, but another threat, just as deadly and far more bloodthirsty… packs of hungry tiger sharks.”
