Remember the excellent-sounding New Zealand flick, Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws, a non-sequel sequel that was in development back in August last year, directed by Andrew Todd and Johnny Hall? If not, catch up here.
Well, apparently the guys have been beavering away at it and it’s headed for a 2011 release.
Apart from the fact that Andy Serkis and Christopher Walken have turned down voice roles in the movie, production seems to be going smoothly enough. At any rate, Todd and Hall have had time to put together a new teaser trailer. Here it is:
Nine years after the events of Ghost Shark, Jack Broody is the mayor of Auckland, New Zealand, and former Lieutenant Commander Tony Palantine is down and out on the streets. The mayoral electoral campaign is underway and Broody is down in the polls, with newcomer Marco Guerra winning the hearts and votes of the public.
But people start turning up dead all over the city, and it soon becomes clear that Ghost Shark is back. Desperate not to repeat the mistakes from his former life, Broody calls in expert ghost shark hunter Tom Logan to defeat the undead beast once and for all. But Logan carries with him demons of his own.
With the election fast approaching and Ghost Shark taking more souls by the day, can Broody and Logan save both the mayoralty and the city? (Official website)
Ghost Shark 2: Urban Jaws stars Campbell Cooley (pictured above, looking suspicious), Johnny Hall, Steve Austin, Kathleen Burns and Roberto Nascimento, with special appearances by cult-film legends George Hardy, Juliette Danielle and Alan Bagh. Principal photography took place in October in Auckland, New Zealand, with additional photography taking place in Christchurch and Los Angeles.
