The second direct to video sequel for Deep Blue Sea is poised and ready to take a bite out of Digital this July before it hits physical media in August. Aptly titled Deep Blue Sea 3, we also have our first look at the film as the official trailer has hit online as well. Action and martial arts sensation Bren Foster of The Last Ship stars this time around. Check it out along with the cover art below courtesy of Warner Bros. Home Entertainment!
Emma Collins, an eminent marine biologist, and her crew have set up a mid-ocean laboratory over a sunken island town in the ocean where they are observing the first known Great White mating area. Unfortunately, the enhanced Bull Sharks that escaped in Deep Blue Sea 2 are also there with their own evolutionary goal: cross-breeding with the bigger faster Great Whites. The mission’s patron, Richard Lowell, believes that the Bull Sharks contain the key to intelligence enhancement, which he secretly intends to sell for big profits. Now, Emma and her crew are trapped on crumbling stilt houses mere feet over the ocean, caught between predators above and below the water.
Deep Blue Sea 3 stars Tania Raymonde (Lost, Goliath) as Emma Collins, a marine biologist who is committed to making the world a better place and Nathaniel Buzolic (The Vampire Diaries, Hacksaw Ridge) an ex-boyfriend who has chosen money over ethics. Other cast includes Emerson Brooks (MacGyver), Bren Foster (The Last Ship) and Japanese star, Reina Aoi as Miya, a grad student who is part of Emma’s small research team that is working on an island sinking in the Mozambique channel.
Here’s some exciting and exclusive news for you all. I will be putting out two exclusive interviews with Bren Foster next month where we talk about the film as well as his martial arts training, starring alongside Steven Seagal and, of course, starring on The Last Ship. He’s an incredible talent and deserves starring roles in films and should definitely be the next action star. Keep an eye out for that on The Action Fix Podcast!
Deep Blue Sea 3 will hit digital platforms on July 28th and physical shelves in a Blu-ray and DVD combo pack on August 25th.
