It's all Relativity for the 3D shark flick from Snakes on a Plane director David R. Ellis

Nov. 23, 2010by: Dave Davis

Just because it's a slow news week doesn't mean you don't want an update on a 3D killer-shark movie from the director of SNAKES ON A PLANE and two FINAL DESTINATIONs. Right?

The independently made movie (formerly known as SHARK NIGHT 3D and currently untitled) comes from director David R. Ellis, and will now be swimming straight toward your eyeballs courtesy of impending studio overlords Relativity.

The movie features chum such as Joel David Moore (AVATAR, HATCHET), Donal Logue (BLADE, THE TAO OF STEVE), plus Sara Paxton, Dustin Milligan, Katharine McPhee, Chris Carmack, Alyssa Diaz, Sinqua Walls and Chris Zylka. Mmm... chum.

What's it about? Well, "the plot surrounds a group of college friends spending a weekend at a house on the lake, only to find that danger lurks beneath its waters." (SPOILER: It's a shark.)

The movie is being planned for a wide release some time in 2011.

Extra Tidbit: You've seen Relativity's name in the opening credits on dozens of movies (AMERICAN GANGSTER, ZOMBIELAND) in the past few years, with many more in the works. The deep-pocketed company also now owns genre label Rogue.

I like the idea behind this but 3D at the cinema has never worked for me NEVER and im envious of the people who it seems to affect but ive noticed i saw a 3d magazine article which had red and blue (whereas the standard was red and green) and that worked great, go to red and blue glasses and the 3D would be amazing

I wish they went through with that sequel to Deep Blue Sea

As much as I love killer shark movies, after Cellular, I always though that David R Ellis was going to start climbing the ranks and making more serious films. But this is good too.

don't forget

Joel David Moore's performance in grandma's boy. He pretty much stole every scene he was in.

Whoever cursed Donal Logue and said that he will forever be in shit films and quickly canceled tv shows needs to die. Seriously, lift this curse and let the man be in something good for once. Being in a Jaws knockoff made by the guy that did the two bad Final Destinations is not helping. Poor guy.
