Screen Media, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment company, today announced the official release date for their recent acquisition of the survival thriller BLACK WATER: ABYSS, the follow-up to the horror film Black Water. The original film was an underground hit when it was released to positive reviews in 2007.
To celebrate the reveal of the release date, they have also dropped a brand new official trailer for the film, which you can check out in the player below. Let us know what you think.
In BLACK WATER: ABYSS, a group of friends explore a remote cave system deep in the forests of Northern Australia when a tropical storm hits. As rising floodwaters trap them deep below the surface, something even deadlier emerges from the darkness – killer crocodiles. Screen Media will release the film day and date on August 7, 2020.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Andrew Traucki (The ABCs of Death, The Reef, Black Water), the film was written by John Ridley and Sarah Smith and produced by Neal Kingston, Michael Robertson and Pam Collis. BLACK WATER: ABYSS stars Jessica McNamee (The Meg), Luke Mitchell (“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”), Amali Golden (Bloom), Benjamin Hoetjes (The Code), and Anthony J. Sharpe (Robert the Bruce).
BLACK WATER: ABYSS will be available in theaters and On Demand on August 7, 2020.
BLACK WATER: ABYSS continues Screen Media’s aggressive rollout strategy. The company recently announced the acquisition of Blackbird, the Roger-Michell-helmed drama starring Susan Saradon, Kate Winslet and Mia Wasikowska. Historic drama Robert the Bruce, which debuted in April, has been topping the independent charts, while Tom-Berenger thriller Blood and Money was released last week. In addition, Screen Media announced the acquisition of Rod Lurie’s feature film The Outpost, based on Jake Tapper’s New York Times Best Seller The Outpost: An Untold Story of American Valor, and released John Turturro’s The Jesus Rolls on DVD earlier this month. The company is also in post-production on Wally’s Wonderland with Nicolas Cage.
