48 Meters Down
48 Meters Down takes place in the backpacking mecca of Brazil, against the backdrop of the country’s vibrant culture, party atmosphere and beautiful beaches. A group of five girls from different backgrounds and countries are united by their lust for life and adventure in the coastal metropolis of Recife. Looking to get off the well-worn tourist trail, they hear about a hidden underwater ruin from a local guide and seize the opportunity to discover their own Atlantis beneath the turquoise waves. Unbeknownst to them, the caves where the forgotten city lies are not completely uninhabited, and as they swim deeper into the submerged labyrinth of caves they enter the territory of the deadliest shark species in the ocean.

Annihilation
http://www.upcominghorrormovies.com/sites/default/files/images/annihilation_xxlg.jpg


Area X has been cut off from the rest of the continent for decades. Nature has reclaimed the last vestiges of human civilization. The first expedition returned with reports of a pristine, Edenic landscape; the second expedition ended in mass suicide; the third expedition in a hail of gunfire as its members turned on one another. The members of the eleventh expedition returned as shadows of their former selves, and within weeks, all had died of cancer. In Annihilation, we join the twelfth expedition.

The group is made up of four women: an anthropologist; a surveyor; a psychologist, the de facto leader; and our narrator, a biologist. Their mission is to map the terrain, record all observations of their surroundings and of one another, and, above all, avoid being contaminated by Area X itself. They arrive expecting the unexpected, and Area X delivers―they discover a massive topographic anomaly and life forms that surpass understanding ― but it's the surprises that came across the border with them and the secrets the expedition members are keeping from one another that change everything.

At the Mountains of Madness
Based on a tale by H.P. Lovecraft, the film would detail a gruesome discovery made during the 1930's by a scientific expedition to the South Pole, which hints at the true origin of mankind having come from elder gods from another planet. They soon realize that during this discovery they may have also accidentally awakened prehistoric creatures...

Bait 2
It's just another perfect day in the City of Angels. That is, until a three mile long, 100-foot tsunami completely obliterates Los Angeles, not only destroying it, but effectively wiping it from the map. However, for five students in a private school, on detention and missing out on a class trip, they turn out to be the lucky ones...or are they?

Because before the day is through they will have to battle a tidal wave, the elements, each other, aftershocks, and worst of all, a 15-foot Great White Shark that has decided to make the school they are trapped in its new hunting ground. With the water constantly rising, fraying tempers, nowhere for them to go, and one of nature's perfect sea creatures actively pursuing them, they are about to be taught a lesson in survival.

Beautiful People


A medical scientist and his family are having dinner together in their isolated villa in the hills. But just as they’re getting comfortable, the family is assaulted by three violent, masked thugs who donʼt want money or goods, they just want to humiliate and annihilate their prey both mentally and physically. The men are looking for social redemption, playing a game of cat and mouse, which will lead to the certain death of the hostages.

The father’s only possibility to save his family is to free the results of his laboratory experiments from their cages – monstrous creatures, hungry for living flesh. The beasts force both the hunters and their prey to run for their lives. The new and dangerous enemy will force the family and their attackers to adapt to a new shift in power. In order to survive they will ultimately have to change their perceptions about what is good and what is evil.

Boar



In the harsh, yet beautiful Australian outback lives a beast, an animal of staggering size, with a ruthless, driving need for blood and destruction. It cares for none, defends its territory with brutal force, and kills with a raw, animalistic savagery unlike any have seen before. Believed nothing more than a myth, a legend brought to life by a drunken local, the beast ventures closer to civilization, closer to life, and ultimately, closer to death. It’s brutal, it’s bloodthirsty, it’s boar.

Yet, once they get there, the scientific team they were supposed to meet has gone missing. Escorted by a first-aider, a British biologist and an American forensic investigator, Melissa and David go looking for the missing team deep into the mountains; but their rescue mission soon turns into a fight for survival as they get caught in an avalanche. Lost in the wild and petrified by the cold, the team experiences the ruthlessness of the mountains. They realize that blizzards, frostbite and cliffs are not that bad once they find out that they are not alone in this snowy forest.

PROJECT DETAILS
  • Will premiere on the SyFy Channel.
  • Filmed in Cape Town, South Africa.
  • Danielle Savre plays "shark conservationist Dr. Misty Calhoun."
  • Rob Mayes plays a "highly decorated ex-Navy SEAL Trent Slater."
  • Michael Beach plays "Carl Durant, a billionaire with questionable ethics."
  • One of the producers was quoted saying: "We are a true sequel. We wanted to keep to the spirit of Deep Blue Sea and why people love it. The research that was used on the sharks in Deep Blue Sea 2 comes from the mythology and story line of the first movie. We have given the lead shark a personality and hope the fans will embrace that as it really helps the story telling and the narrative in a way that first one didn’t. Deep Blue Sea 2 has a slightly slower build but once the rubber band snaps things go boom really quickly!"
  • Directed by Darin Scott (Dark House, House Party: Tonight's the Night).
  • Since this is a much smaller budget than the first movie, don't expect any of the original key cast to return.
  • Jack Perez revealed his idea for a sequel in an interview, which would've happened had the studio not pulled the plug on it. He was quoted saying: "The script is about this scientific research ship that is seized by Somali pirates, and a team of Navy SEALs have to go in and take them out. The whole ship is basically a gigantic floating laboratory, with a maze of tunnels that the sharks can travel through that open up into tanks.” Into this seabound shark Habitrail go Sgt. Nate Pickett, NSA geneticist/marine biologist Dr. Alexandra Cruz and Pickett’s multiculti team of bad-ass soldiers. “My thinking was that this was Sgt. Rock vs. sharks, so I developed this platoon kind of based on my favorite Sgt. Rock characters. To a certain degree, it was similar to what they did in Predator; there were definitely echoes of that sort of motley group." Apparently the sharks would have been modified to incorporate machine guns, torpedoes and other weapons. (3/31/17)
  • A sequel has been rumored to be in development since the early 2000's, but it wasn't until 2009 that things started to really move when Warner Bros. hired Jack Perez (Wild Things 2, Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus) to write and direct, but that never came to fruition.
  • This is a sequel to the 1999 movie from director Renny Harlin, which starred names like Thomas Jane, LL Cool J, Michael Rapaport, Stellan Skarsgård and Samuel L. Jackson.

PROJECT DETAILS
  • Director Ben Wheatley had a recent interview where he described the film, saying: "It’s monsters, shotguns, trucks, fighting at night, and it’s in the future, things coming out like crabs. Stuff with claws. That’s the elevator pitch. And August is when we shoot it… It will be dynamic and exciting the same way that ‘Free Fire’ is. But it won’t be sadistic. But it will be fun. It’s a kind of a 50s B-Movie done through the prism of ‘Hill Street Blues’ and ‘Doom’."(4/21/17)
  • Filming is hoped to begin sometime in August 2017. (3/16/17)
  • Armie Hammer (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) plays the love interest of Alicia Vikander's character.
  • Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, Tomb Raider) is in talks to be the lead female protagonist.
  • Directed by Ben Wheatley (Sightseer, Kill List, High-Rise).

PROJECT DETAILS
  • Not much of an update, but Joe Dante had a recent interview where he revealed what may be the holdup in the sequel moving forward, saying: "I probably have less information to give you than anybody because I am not involved with it, I don’t control the material, it’s reverted back to Chris Columbus who wrote the script for the first movie. They have plans to do something but what Chris wants to do may not be what Warner wants to do and it’s not just Warner it’s also a lot of other people like Amblin and Steven Spielberg – everyone has to agree on what they want to do and at this point nobody is going to figure that out." Adding.. "I think the reuniting of the cast is highly unlikely. Perhaps a Gremlins prequel might be something they will do but I don’t know as I was not asked to be involved." (9/27/17)
  • Writer/producer Chris Columbus revealed that he has completed the script in a recent interview. Here's what he had to say: "I’m really proud of the script. It is as twisted and dark as anything, so we’ll see. It’s always a budgetary conversation when we’re going to shoot it. I wanted to go back to the really twisted sensibility of the first movie. I found that was a very easy place for me to fall back into and start writing again so hopefully we’ll see that movie soon." He also adds that there will be minimal CGI, saying: "Oh, without a doubt, minimal CGI. CGI will enable us to remove wires and make the puppeteers lives a little easier." Apparently the movie brings up the idea of killing Gizmo since he poses a threat if someone doesn't follow the rules: "That comes up in the movie, certainly… I think it probably is a good idea to be honest with you. Too many people are dying." (8/20/17)
  • The writer of the original, Christopher Columbus, produces and is working on the latest draft on the script.
  • Apparently the project is back on track and is officially going to be a remake instead of a sequel, as the studio has hired Carl Ellsworth (Disturbia, The Last House on the Left, Red Dawn, Goosebumps) to script. At the moment it's too early to tell who will be directing. (4/8/15)
  • It looks like talks of sequel/remake have died over time. It was revealed a couple years back that Seth Grahame-Smith and producing partner David Katzenberg were supposedly developing a remake, but that's no longer the case. Here's what Seth Grahame-Smith had to say in a recent interview: "It was a completely different cast of characters, but acknowledging the events of the first two movies…I think we just ran out of steam. It’s one of those things where everybody got busy doing other things. It’s something I would love to come back to, but right now Steven’s making two movies back to back and Chris Columbus is busy. We’re all taking a five-minute break on that." (1/16/15)
  • Previous Gremlins director Joe Dante has expressed interest in returning to the films with the "right script."
  • The studio reportedly once considered this to be in 3D.
  • This project initially started out as a remake, but over time (and through different writers) is now said to be a sequel.
