Survival is the only victory.
Director Kiah Roache-Turner–best known to genre fans for 2015’s Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead–is diving back into the field with survival thriller Beast of War. And, as evident from the new poster on this page, the film spotlights another monster shark.
The Cornerstone entry–which will launch at the upcoming American Film Market–is produced by Blake Northfield and Chris Brown. The film–shooting in Australia and Malta starting next year–will feature practical creature effects from Paul Trefry (Alien: Covenant).
The film–set in 1942–follows a warship carrying Australian soldiers to the front lines of World War II, when Japanese fighter jets strafe the ship. In order to survive, several soldiers build a makeshift raft and band together to stay alive.
But, in the dark below, “a great white shark hunts in the wreckage, drawn to the smell of fresh blood in the water.” Sound the dinner bell.
