48 METERS DOWN (2018)

48 METERS DOWN is the official sequel to the Summer box office smash hit 47 METERS DOWN starring Mandy Moore and Claire Holt.

48 METERS DOWN takes place in the backpacking mecca of Brazil, against the backdrop of the country’s vibrant culture, party atmosphere and beautiful beaches. A group of five girls from different backgrounds and countries are united by their lust for life and adventure in the coastal metropolis of Recife. Looking to get off the well-worn tourist trail, they hear about a hidden underwater ruin from a local guide and seize the opportunity to discover their own Atlantis beneath the turquoise waves. Unbeknownst to them, the caves where the forgotten city lies are not completely uninhabited, and as they swim deeper into the submerged labyrinth of caves they enter the territory of the deadliest shark species in the ocean.

Writer and director of the original, Johannes Roberts (The Other Side of the Door), will be helming the project, which is based on a script he co-wrote with frequent writing partner and collaborator on 47 Meters Down, Ernest Riera.

The Fyzz Facility Pictures is producing the film with Altitude acting as sales agent and Entertainment Studios selling domestically.
