    VALLETTA: A shark attack thriller The Wreck by Liam O’Donnell will start filming in Malta in September 2021. The film is set to take advantage of Malta’s cash rebate of 40% on all eligible expenditure.

    The script written by Nick Saltrese (Jetski, A Prayer Before Dawn) tells the story of old friends who travel to the Caribbean on a scuba diving adventure to explore a WW2 wreck, only to become trapped in the rusted underwater battleship, surrounded by great white sharks. Mark Silk (47 Meters Down, 47 Meters Down: Uncaged) will be the cinematographer.

    Altitude Film Sales are representing the film at the forthcoming Cannes virtual market. The film is produced by Andrew Prendergast and Chris Reed, who also brought Jetski to shoot on the Mediterranean island in 2020. Will Clarke, Andy Mayson and Mike Runagall are executive producers.
