Since The Shallows is a shark movie, director Jaume Collet-Serra researched the crap out of sharks in preparation—the result of which is a film that explores aspects of the creatures we’ve rarely seen before. The weird thing is that the director himself doesn’t see The Shallows as a shark movie.
Summer is coming, which means one thing: it’s almost shark-movie season! In The Shallows, a great white that has no business being so close to shore menaces an extremely unlucky surfer (Blake Lively) who’s been stranded on a rock tantalizingly close to the (deserted) beach.
Looks like Akira has been ripped out of development purgatory and dropped into production hell. Warner Bros. has reportedly greenlit director Jaume Collet-Serra's remake of the anime classic.
