David R. Ellis (The Final Destination, Snakes on a Plane) is set to direct Shark Night 3D for Incentive Filmed Entertainment, reports Deadline New York.
Jesse Studenberg and Will Hayes wrote the script for the film, which is scheduled to shoot this summer in Louisiana. Mike Fleiss, Chris Briggs and Lynette Howell are producing. Fleiss and Briggs previously teamed up for Hostel and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Ellis will shoot the film with 3D cameras as he did for The Final Destination. He was second unit director water-set films The Perfect Storm and Deep Blue Sea. The latter film’s Walt Conti will create the animatronic sharks in Shark Night 3D.
