Have we entered a new golden age for shark movies? Probably not, but that isn’t stopping Syfy from commissioning a “Deep Blue Sea” sequel 18 years after the original. The move follows the recent success of both “The Shallows” and “47 Meters Down,” not to mention Syfy’s own “Sharknado” series.

Michael Beach is starring in the film and, since he’ll also appear in next year’s “Aquaman,” it doesn’t seem premature to deem this a case of nominative determinism. Darin Scott (“House Party: Tonight’s the Night”) is helming this particular ship, which is already filming in Cape Town.
