Long far and away from any further mention of remaking Akira, director Jaume Collet-Serra, has sunk his teeth into actress Blake Lively who leads his latest thriller, The Shallows. Sony is opening the film in June from a script by Anthony Jaswinski that sees Lively in the role of a wounded surfer forced atop a rock out to sea and into a battle of wits with a hungry great white shark 200 yards from her secluded beach getaway.
Sony has released its official trailer this week and it doesn’t really hold back much as it reveals plenty about the film in a few of its twists. Otherwise, it hypes something different and pretty thrilling for Collet-Serra fans in need if a change from the usual Liam Neeson buttkickery. Personally, horror films rarely do anything for me, but this feels as intriguing as it looks. Check it out!
