A shark film rated R for blood? Get out of here...
...KHC has learned that the upcoming Deep Blue Sea 3, directed by John Pogue (The Quiet Ones), has been rated R by the MPAA for “some violence, bloody images, and language.” Go figure.
The film follows on the fins of the direct-to-video 2018 Deep Blue Sea 2, which some would say was a weak follow up to Renny Harlin's hit original.
In Deep Blue Sea 3, written by Dirk Blackman (Underworld: Rise of the Lycans):
"Dr. Emma Collins and her team are spending their third summer on the island of Little Happy studying the effect of climate change on the great white sharks who come to the nearby nursery every year to give birth. Along with the last two inhabitants of this former fishing village, their peaceful life is disrupted when a "scientific" team led by her ex-boyfriend and marine biologist Richard show up looking for three bull sharks who we soon learn aren't just any bull sharks."
The film stars Nathaniel Buzolic, Emerson Brooks, and Bren Foster.
Swim with Deep Blue Sea 3 when the film (supposedly) releases on July 28th. (We say supposedly, because there has been very little confirmation around the project).
