Like sharks? Like night? Like 3D? Well you’re in luck if you happen to like all those three things, because David R. Ellis (left) is bringing all three to you in “Shark Night”. Most people will know David R. Ellis as the guy behind the infamous “Snakes on a Plane”, but I like to think of him as the director of “Final Destination 2”, which I still contend is the best of the lot, if purely on the creativity of the kills. Of course, Ellis also did the most recent “Final Destination” movie, but I won’t hold that against him.
Deadline doesn’t have any word on the plot, but come on, it’s called “Shark Night” and it’s going to be shot with 3D cameras. Think pretty young teens on summer vacation, their tight Hollywood-refined bodies glistening with sweat and tanning location, on a beach locale… Ahem.
Ellis is an old hand in the genre, and besides having already shot “The Final Destination” in 3D, he’s also already spent time in the water with sharks as second unit director of “Deep Blue Sea”. Expect the film to be substance free, but one hell of a visual thrill ride.
