From PI: Underwater thriller going swimmingly

SharkProducer James Harris has updated us on a new feature film he is working on. 47 Meters Down is currently in the early stages of pre-production, with shooting anticipated to get underway in the summer.

The watery suspense thriller centres on four divers who get trapped at the bottom of the sea. As they try to get back to their boat, they realise they have unwelcome company – the sort of company with fins and teeth.

Mark Lane also produces this shark suspense story, with Storage 24 director Johannes Roberts at the helm to direct.

Much of the filming needs to take place underwater, and Harris tells us that Pinewood’s vast tank is the likely choice (a teaser trailer has already been filmed there), with Mexico also on the shortlist as a possible location.
