Netflix is working with director Xavier Gens (Cold Skin, Frontier(s), Divide) and it looks like it’s going to be a big epic shark picture. We can’t wait to see what Gens does with Netflix and sharks. Gens has consistently made interesting projects, and we hope he brings some of that magic to this shark thriller.
The summary provided by Variety is as follows:
Set in the summer of 2024, the film takes place in Paris, which is hosting the Seine Triathlon World Championships for the first time. Sophia, a brilliant scientist, learns from Mika, a young environmental activist, that a large shark is swimming deep in the river. To avoid a bloodbath in the heart of the city, they have no choice but to join forces with Adil, the commander of the Seine River Police.
The project doesn’t have a name right now, but we’ll be sure to keep you updated on more nitty-gritty details as we roll them out.
