RLJE Films and Shudder have just snatched up the North American rights to Martin Wilson’s GREAT WHITE.
Written by Michael Boughen (Dying Breed), the film stars Katrina Bowden (Piranha 3DD), Aaron Jakubenko (Tidelands), Kimi Tsukakoshi (Riptide), Tim Kano (Neighbours), and Te Kohe Tuhaka (Love and Monsters) as a bunch of tourists who find themselves stranded and menaced by a monster from the watery deep.
“We’ve all been afraid to go back into the water since 1975 and GREAT WHITE is going to keep us out of the water for years to come,” says Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer at RLJE Films. “There is no better time than the summer to bring this suspenseful and terrifying new film to audiences.” GREAT WHITE was produced by Neal Kingston (Nerve), Michael Robertson (The Reef), and Pam Collis (Black Water: Abyss) through new production outfit Thrills & Spills.
RLJE FILMS, a business unit of AMC Networks, has plans for a theatrical release this Summer, while Shudder will premiere the film on its platform later in 2021.
