Claire Holt joins Mandy Moore in underwater thriller 47 Meters Down


Hot on the heels of yesterday's announcement that Mandy Moore will be starring in the shark-infested thriller 47 METERS DOWN comes the news Claire Holt will be diving in as well. Holt will play Moore's sister in the film, which will be distributed by Dimension Films.

Here's a refresher on the plot:

Twenty-something sisters Kate and Lisa are gorgeous, fun loving and ready for the holiday of a lifetime in Mexico. When the opportunity to go cage diving to view Great White sharks presents itself, thrill-seeking Kate jumps at the chance while Lisa takes some convincing. After some not so gentle persuading, Lisa finally agrees and the girls soon find themselves two hours off the coast of Huatulco and about to come face to face with nature's fiercest predator.

But what should have been the trip to end all trips soon becomes a living nightmare when the shark cage breaks free from their boat, sinks and they find themselves trapped at the bottom of the ocean. With less than an hour of oxygen left in their tanks, they must somehow work out how to get back to the boat above them through 47 meters of shark-infested waters.  

The Aussie actress will soon appear in NBC's Charles Manson series Aquarius and is known for her roles in the CW's The Originals and Vampire Diaries.

Johannes Roberts is directing 47 METERS DOWN from a script he co-wrote it with Ernest Riera. Production begins in June.
