PROJECT DETAILS
  • Will premiere on the SyFy Channel.
  • Filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.
  • Danielle Savre plays "shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun."
  • Rob Mayes plays a "highly decorated ex-Navy SEAL Trent Slater."
  • Michael Beach plays "Carl Durant, a billionaire with questionable ethics."
  • One of the producers was quoted saying: "We are a true sequel. We wanted to keep to the spirit of Deep Blue Sea and why people love it. The research that was used on the sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2 comes from the mythology and story line of the first movie. We have given the lead shark a personality and hope the fans will embrace that as it really helps the story telling and the narrative in a way that first one didn’t. Deep Blue Sea 2 has a slightly slower build but once the rubber band snaps things go boom really quickly!"
  • Directed by Darin Scott (Dark HouseHouse Party: Tonight's the Night).
  • Since this is a much smaller budget than the first movie, don't expect any of the original key cast to return.
  • Jack Perez revealed his idea for a sequel in an interview, which would've happened had the studio not pulled the plug on it. He was quoted saying: "The script is about this scientific research ship that is seized by Somali pirates, and a team of Navy SEALs have to go in and take them out. The whole ship is basically a gigantic floating laboratory, with a maze of tunnels that the sharks can travel through that open up into tanks.” Into this seabound shark Habitrail go Sgt. Nate Pickett, NSA geneticist/marine biologist Dr. Alexandra Cruz and Pickett’s multiculti team of bad-ass soldiers. “My thinking was that this was Sgt. Rock vs. sharks, so I developed this platoon kind of based on my favorite Sgt. Rock characters. To a certain degree, it was similar to what they did in Predator; there were definitely echoes of that sort of motley group." Apparently the sharks would have been modified to incorporate machine guns, torpedoes and other weapons. (3/31/17)
  • A sequel has been rumored to be in development since the early 2000's, but it wasn't until 2009 that things started to really move when Warner Bros. hired Jack Perez (Wild Things 2, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus) to write and direct, but that never came to fruition.
  • This is a sequel to the 1999 movie from director Renny Harlin, which starred names like Thomas Jane, LL Cool J, Michael Rapaport, Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson.
