Family fun with a twist! Lionsgate Play exclusively brings to your screens, the shark-venture of the season, Black Demon starring the dashing Josh Lucas in the lead. Threatening Josh and his family though, is an ancient curse, placed by Angry Gods. This curse spares none, as the lonesome Megalodon that circles the oil rig of El Diamante, attacks anyone that gets close, bringing down nature’s wrath upon them. This Lionsgate Play thriller starring Fernanda Urrejola, Julio Cesar Cedillo, and Venus Ariel alongside Josh Lucas is set to premiere exclusively on 8th September.
Talking about Black Demon and his reason for making it, actor Josh Lucas said, “The Black Demon is a classic action-adventure shark story. And without a doubt, one of the things I think that makes it special is that it’s got a very family at its core, a young family at its core. So hopefully, it’s a movie that kids love. It’s a movie that hopefully parents will love. I partly made this movie because I have a nine-year-old boy who loves these kinds of movies.
The actor further drew parallels with the classic Jurassic Park franchise and said, “We saw Jurassic Park movies a few days before I got this script. The first scene – in that one of them is Megalodon, right? And so, in this movie, we have a giant Megalodon shark, an ancient shark, who’s haunting the movie and has been sort of cursed on this oil rig in this part of the land by an angry God. And it’s a very amazing story of, you know, nature versus man versus environmental problems that we’re all facing all kinds of colliding together, hopefully in a really fun action film… a really fun kind of scary action film.”
The Black Demon is coming to your screens exclusively on Lionsgate Play on 8th September.
