EXCLUSIVE: Rising U.S. actress Brec Bassinger (Bella And The Bulldogs), recently cast as Stargirl in the Warner Bros and DC Universe streaming series of the same name, has joined the cast of 47 Meters Down — Uncaged.
As revealed yesterday, principal photography gets underway this week in the Dominican Republic ahead of a June 28, 2019 stateside release. Johannes Roberts returns to direct the sequel from a script he co-wrote with his 47 Meters Down co-writer, Ernest Riera.
The film will tell the story of four teens diving in a ruined underwater city, who quickly find themselves in a watery hell as their adventure turns to horror when they learn they are not alone in the submerged caves. Bassinger will play the popular, self entitled leader of a group of mean girls.
James Harris, Mark Lane and Robert Jones of The Fyzz are producing with Byron Allen, Carolyn Folks, and Jennifer Lucas executive producing. Allen’s ESMP will distribute in the U.S.
Bassinger is well known for playing the eponymous lead in Nickelodeon show Bella And The Bulldogs. She has also starred in Hulu series All Night and played recurring roles on shows The Haunted Hathaways, School of Rock and The Goldbergs as well as movies Status Update and Saturday Night At The Starlight.
