Even though Johannes Roberts will be getting behind the camera for the hotly anticipated Resident Evil reboot, he’s first hitting the sea for a sequel to his massive hit 47 Meters Down.
Now titled 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, Deadline reports that the sequel stars John Corbett (“Sex in the City”), Nia Long (“Empire”), Sophie Nelisse (The Book Thief), Corinne Foxx, Sistine Stallone, Brianne Tju (“Scream” TV series), Davi Santos (Polaroid) and Khylin Rhambo (“Teen Wolf”).
Foxx and Stallone, the daughters of Jamie Foxx and Sylvester Stallone, respectively, will be making their film debuts.
“The film will tell the story of four teens diving in a ruined underwater city, who quickly find themselves in a watery hell as their adventure turns to horror when they learn they are not alone in the submerged caves. As they swim deeper into the claustrophobic labyrinth of caves they enter the territory of the deadliest shark species in the ocean.”
Principal photography is underway this week in the Dominican Republic with Byron Allen’s ESMP U.S. release in 3,500+ screens set for June 28, 2019. Johannes Roberts returns to direct the sequel from a script he co-wrote with his 47 Meters Down co-writer, Ernest Riera.
