Production of the survival thriller, Jetski, is underway in Malta. The film is directed by James Nunn, known for his 2012 British thriller, TowerBlock. Jetski follows a group of spring-breakers who are having a good time partying in Mexico. Things go awry when they steal a couple of jet skis and take them out and wind up having a head-on collision. The group ends up stranded miles from the coast, finding themselves in the midst of underwater predators. We know how this is going to go!
The film, written by Nick Satrese, will be shopped to buyers at the American Film Market, which runs from November 9-13. Shooting began on location in Malta on October 14 under strict COVID-safe guidelines.
Producer Andrew Prendergast said, “We are thrilled to be producing Jetski on the beautiful island of Malta with such a talented cast and crew in these difficult times. Jetski is a nail-biting ride that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats until the very last minute.”
Executive producer Al Munteanu for SquareOne Entertainment will distribute the film in Germany and Austria added, “A famished shark, college kids — what more do you need? However, finding real freshness in this genre is the holy grail and we believe with its unexpected twists and turns, Jetski has the DNA to become the next guilty pleasure that speaks to everyone’s desire not to get devoured.”
We are looking forward to grabbing some popcorn and a soda while watching the kids try to escape the toothy men in the grey suits.
