Maybe women can swim faster?
It’ll be nothing but women in the next shark survival thriller–Something in the Water–now being shot in the Dominican Republic, according to a report on Deadline. The feature–which does not yet have a release window–is being shopped by Studiocanal.
The film–directed by Hayley Easton Street from a screenplay by Cat Clarke–follows a “dream wedding, which turns into a nightmare when five girlfriends must fight for their lives in open water,” according to the brief synopsis. One must assume hungry sharks are involved here somewhere.
The all-female cast includes Hiftu Quasem (Ten Percent), Lauren Lyle (Outlander), Natalie Mitson (The Last Bus), Nicole Rieko Setsuko (Only One Gets Out Alive) and Ellouise Shakespeare-Hart (Ten Percent).
Street called the feature an “elevated survival film–unlike anything else I’ve worked on. This film will be an emotional and visual experience, putting the audience at the center of the action and using VFX to bring the terror to life.”
