The Hollywood Reporter brings word that 47 Meters Down is going to get a sequel. The extremely tense underwater thriller, despite being originally intended to go straight to home viewing under the title In The Deep, was a sizeable hit, so this is no surprise really. Director Johannes Roberts will return to write and direct the film, which will be called….48 Meters Down.The first film stars Mandy Moore and Claire Holt as vacationing sisters in Mexico who encounter sharks in the water. The sequel will take place in Brazil, and follow
A group of girls looking for adventure in the coastal metropolis of Recife. Hoping to get off the well-worn tourist trail, they hear about some hidden underwater ruins only to find that the turquoise waves of their secret Atlantis aren’t completely uninhabited.”
Said producer James Harris:
“We are so pleased by the huge success of 47 Meters Down, it totally exceeded all expectations. 48 Meters Down will take the claustrophobia of cave diving and the thrill of shark encounters and move everything to the next level.”
I’m surprised that we haven’t we had a sequel to The Shallows yet though….
