STUDIOCANAL UK today announce that principal photography has commenced on all female shark survival thriller SOMETHING IN THE WATER, directed by Hayley Easton Street (Art director STAR WARS: EPISODE VII – THE FORCE AWAKENS, FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM, JUSTICE LEAGUE) shooting on location in The Dominican Republic.
Written by Cat Clarke (TEN PERCENT, GOOD OMENS) and produced by Julie Baines (TRIANGLE AND FOUR KIDS AND IT), SOMETHING IN THE WATER boasts a cast of rising stars including Hiftu Quasem (THIS IS GOING TO HURT, TEN PERCENT, KILLING EVE, THE NEST), Lauren Lyle (KAREN PIRIE, OUTLANDER, VIGIL), Natalie Mitson (THE LAST BUS, THE LARKINS), Nicole Rieko Setsuko (ONLY ONE GETS OUT ALIVE), and Ellouise Shakespeare-Hart (TEN PERCENT).
A dream wedding turns into a nightmare when five girlfriends fight for their lives in open water as SOMETHING IN THE WATER invites audiences to experience suspense, survival, horror and biting humour.
Director Hayley Easton Street comments “This is an elevated survival film, unlike anything else I’ve worked on, with incredible strong female leads at the heart of the story. SOMETHING IN THE WATER will be an emotional and visual experience, putting the audience at the centre of the action and using seamless VFX to bring the terror to life. I couldn’t be more excited to helm this movie.”
