Dread Central: Aussie Native Jesse Spencer Becomes Bait for Russell Mulcahy


Though great whites usually get all the love in movies about killer sharks, director Russell Mulcahy is looking to remind audiences that tiger sharks are pretty nasty mothers, too, in his new flick Bait 3D.

Bloody Disgusting just landed the first bit of casting news for the project. According to the site Aussie local Jesse Spencer has been signed on for a role in the bloody thriller penned by Mulcahy, Shane Krause, and Shayne Armstrong.

In a sleepy coastal resort community, shoppers at an underground supermarket find themselves terrorized by a crazed bandit when the unimaginable occurs.

A monstrous freak tsunami swallows the town.

Now trapped inside a flooded supermarket with an armed maniac and rushing water threatening to entomb them all in a watery grave, the imprisoned band of survivors discover they’re not alone. The tsunami has brought some unwanted visitors from the depths. As the waters rise, they must overcome not only the threat of drowning but also another threat just as deadly and far more bloodthirsty … packs of hungry tiger sharks.”
