Following in the footsteps of the original, 47 Meters Down: Uncaged is a deep-sea horror/thriller, directed, and executive produced by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down, upcoming Resident Evil reboot) from a script he co-wrote with his 47 Meters Down co-writer, Ernest Riera. James Harris, Mark Lane and Robert Jones of The Fyzz are producing with Byron Allen, Carolyn Folks, and Jennifer Lucas executive producing.
47 Meters Down: Uncaged follows the diving adventure of four teenage girls (Corinne Foxx, Sistine Stallone, Sophie Nélisse, and Brianne Tju) exploring a submerged Mayan City. Once inside, their rush of excitement turns into a jolt of terror as they discover the sunken ruins are a hunting ground for deadly Great White Sharks. With their air supply steadily dwindling, the friends must navigate the underwater labyrinth of claustrophobic caves and eerie tunnels in search of a way out of their watery hell.
