This Can't Be the Plot Synopsis for "Jaws 5," Can It?

by | February 14, 2007 | Comments

I’ll advise you to take this whole story with a few grains of salt, but let’s just dive right in: There just might be a direct-to-video "Jaws" sequel on the way — and if it’s boasting the same plot divulged over at, then we may be in for a flick on par with "Jaws: The Revenge."

According to the site, "Jaws: Rising" focuses on marine biologist Mike Brody (yes, one of the Brody boys is back) who must contend with a man-eating shark while visiting the old Amity Island homestead with his wife and teenage daughter. Yawn.

Allegedly the script was written by one John Lansing, and it was then passed off to another screenwriter named Chris Morgan. (He wrote "Cellular" and "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.") No word yet on A) who’ll be directing, B) when the thing will begin production, or C) if the movie is actually happening in the first place. Much as I love sharks (and shark movies), I gotta call foul on Universal here. Guys, if you’re actively thinking about resurrecting the "Jaws" series … don’t do it this way.
