The Deep Blue Sea franchise hasn’t hit a rip tide yet and another sequel to the 1999 thriller is making its way to digital and home video.
It was only two years ago that the waters ran red again with Deep Blue Sea 2, a moderate success for VOD.
In the third chapter, Deep Blue Sea 3, which is set to drop on digital July 28, 2020, and the Blu-ray/DVD August, 25, we follow Marine biologist Emma Collins (Tania Raymonde ) who assembles a crew and takes them on a mission to explore a sunken island town in the middle of the ocean where they plan to document the first Great White mating area.
“Unfortunately (spoiler alert), the enhanced Bull Sharks that escaped in Deep Blue Sea 2 are also there with their own evolutionary goal: cross-breeding with the bigger faster Great Whites.
The mission’s patron, Richard Lowell, believes that the Bull Sharks contain the key to intelligence enhancement, which he secretly intends to sell for big profits. Now, Emma and her crew are trapped on crumbling stilt houses mere feet over the ocean, caught between predators above and below the water.”
“We were thrilled with the success of the sequel” said Executive Producer, Tom Keniston in a statement, “and with Deep Blue Sea 3 we are able to build on the success of the franchise with a brand new story that will give audiences all the thrills and excitement they expect from a Deep Blue Sea movie.”
There are some power hitters behind this third installment:
It is directed by John Pogue (The Quiet Ones) and written by Dirk Blackman (Outlander). Tom Keniston (Deep Blue Sea 2) serves as executive producer and is produced by Hunt Lowry (Donnie Darko) and Patty Reed (Pure Country Pure Heart) for Roserock Films with cinematographer, Michael Swan.
Will this be the fin-ale we’ve been waiting for?
