Corin Nemec and Brooke Hogan Tackle "Sand Sharks"

Sci-Fi Director Mark Atkins Brings Life to This Prehistoric Predator.

Los Angeles, CA, April 06, 2011 --( American World Pictures (AWP), a leading independent motion picture distribution and production company, and Remember Dreaming Productions, are pleased to announce the completion of principal photography on the Sci-Fi feature film “Sand Sharks,” directed by Mark Atkins (“Battle of Los Angeles”) and starring Corin Nemec (“Stargate SG-1,” “The War At Home”) and Brooke Hogan (“Brooke Knows Best,” “Hogan Knows Best”).

The film, written by Cameron Larson also stars Gina Holden (“Saw 3D,” “Final Destination 3,”) Vanessa Lee Evigan (“Journey to the Center of the Earth,” “Whatever It Takes,”) Eric Scott Woods (“Dark Metropolis”) and Julie Berman (ABC’s “General Hospital”). In this Sci-Fi feature, 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.

Director Mark Atkins stated, "Sand Sharks will give a new meaning to a "fish out of water" story. The fish will be out of the water and in the air as they seek and destroy unsuspecting residents of White Sands. Fans of Corin Nemec, Brooke Hogan, Gina Holden, Vanessa Lee Evigan, Eric Scott Woods and Robert Pike Daniel should prepare themselves for some serious shark mayhem as they try to cope with the terror in this Tremors'esqe Jaws-homage. You won't look at the beach the same afterwards. We are working overtime to take this terrestrial shark movie to a new level."

American World Pictures’ Mark L. Lester and Dana Dubovsky and Remember Dreaming Productions’ Stan Spry serve as Producers along with Cameron Larson, Eric Scott Woods, Anthony Fankhauser and Scott Wheeler. Says AWP’s Dana Dubovsky, “Director Mark Atkins knows this genre all too well, and the cast was great to work with. Brooke Hogan is a natural in front of camera, this being her first feature film, she was an absolute pro.” Remember Dreaming Productions Stan Spry states, "The cast and crew were extremely hard working; Brooke Hogan did fantastic and Corin Nemec, one of my childhood hero's was amazing. The film is a fun, action packed, thrill ride with a mix of scares, thrills and laughs.” AWP’s Mark Lester adds “We expect audiences to be on the edge of their seat when watching “Sand Sharks.”
