Gina Holden Paid Her Rent, Stars in ‘Sand Sharks’


Shooting has wrapped on American World Pictures and Remember Dreaming Productions’ ridiculous new creature-feature Sand Sharks. Director Mark Atkins describes the film as a “Tremors-esqe Jaws homage” and promises “the fish will be out of the water and in the air as they seek and destroy.”

The official synopsis reads:

Prehistoric sand-dwelling sharks are unleashed on the island of White Sands when an underwater earthquake cracks open a crater deep beneath the ocean surface. The most menacing beasts to ever rule the waters, now rule the sand; with their monster appetites they mercilessly munch on anything that crosses their path.

While the Syfy Channel-like plot doesn’t quite get my motorboat running, knowing genre babe Gina Holden is involved has got me hook, line, and sinker. Holden, who starred in last year’s Saw 3-D, holds a long list of horror/sci-fi creds including Aliens vs. Predators: Requiem, Final Destination 3 and NBC’s “Harper’s Island.”

Sand Sharks costars “7th Heaven” hottie Julie Berman, Briana Evigan’s sister (there are two!) Vanessa Lee Evigan, Hulk Hogan’s ruggedly handsome daughter Brooke Hogan, Eric Scott Woods (Jonah Hex), and Corin Nemec (“Stargate: SG-1”).
