Director calls 47 Meters Down cave-diving sequel "The Descent underwater"

Director Johannes Roberts is one busy dude. Not only does the man have THE STRANGERS: PREY AT NIGHT hitting us this month but right afterward the director will jump directly into the sequel to 47 METERS DOWN.

And speaking of 48 METERS DOWN, Roberts recently sat down with Daily Dead and spoke a bit about the upcoming sequel; mainly that his approach to the new film will include cave-diving and he calling it "THE DESCENT underwater."

Johannes Roberts:

Now, I get to go off and basically do The Descent underwater. It's going to be really cool and terrifying. I learned how to cave dive while I did 47 Meters Down, and I remembered when I did it, I came out and I was like, "If we ever do a sequel, that's where we're doing it," because it's the most terrifying thing I've ever done in my life.

I'm there. That's all the man had to say. What about you? Make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are about this new film in the comments below or on social media!

48 METERS DOWN synopsis:

48 Meters Down takes place in the backpacking mecca of Brazil, against the backdrop of the country’s vibrant culture, party atmosphere and beautiful beaches. A group of five girls from different backgrounds and countries are united by their lust for life and adventure in the coastal metropolis of Recife. Looking to get off the well-worn tourist trail, they hear about a hidden underwater ruin from a local guide and seize the opportunity to discover their own Atlantis beneath the turquoise waves. Unbeknownst to them, the caves where the forgotten city lies are not completely uninhabited, and as they swim deeper into the submerged labyrinth of caves they enter the territory of the deadliest shark species in the ocean.

48 METERS DOWN is directed by Johannes Roberts from a script he co-wrote with Ernest Riera. James Harris, Mark Lane, Wayne Marc Godfrey and Robert Jones of The Fyzz Facility are producing.
