Nail-biting trailer for Deep Blue Sea sequel released

If you were a big fan of cult hit classic Deep Blue Sea, get your popcorn and burley ready. A sequel to the 1999 horror movie about super-intelligent killer sharks starring is on its way.

The new direct-to-DVD movie is being produced by the same people that brought you Sharknado, Sharknado 2, and Sharknado: Heart of Sharkness. So you could say it's in the hands of the experts.

According to Gizmodo, the remake won't feature any of the original cast, including star Snakes on a Plane actor Samuel L. Jackson, but it will boast many feature angry genius sharks, hungry for the flesh of man.

Deep Blue Sea 2 will be the first shark-horror film in a few years and Warner Bros. creative executive Matt Bierman said it's a slightly different tone to add to the catelogue.

"Deep Blue Sea has a slightly slower build, but once the rubber band snaps, things go boom really quickly!" Bierman said.

"The research 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 storytelling and the narrative in a way that the first one didn't."
