As you may have already heard Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry (below) is currently tackling sharks down in South Africa as she shoots her latest movie ‘Dark Tide’. The John Stockwell helmed project has had it’s share of life imitating art already though as whilst in the open water an actual Great White turned up and ended up munching on a seal decoy as opposed to Berry and her bikini covered body. You can check out stills of the event below.
“Sara (Halle Berry) is a modern-day adventurer, deeply drawn to close encounters with the magnificent White Sharks who rule the primal predator shore of isolated Guadalupe Island. When her husband chooses ambition over his wife’s safety in a split-second encounter with the jaws of death, her marriage nearly breaks apart. A year later, a monsoon season voyage back to the same island becomes an escalating series of terrifying underwater confrontations and gut-wrenching emotional challenges. Testing her courage in the face of nature’s ultimate terror, she shows herself as tough as the men she is attracted to – and perhaps the bravest of all. Sara endures and changes the terms of the contest with mankind’s most feared underwater predator.”
The film was penned by Amy Sorlie, who is herself a journalist and accomplished shark diver.
‘Dark Tide’ will be ready for release sometime in 2011. Yes I know that’s vague, sorry.
