From 'Avatar' to 'Shark Night 3-D': We look forward to the 'Bones' episode

Posted on


Image Credit: Mark FellmanNo, we won’t ever let Bones live down that Avatar episode. Recurring Bones guest star Joel David Moore, who’s known to the masses for working alongside Sam Worthington and Sigourney Weaver in Avatar, has been added to the cast of Shark Night 3-D, which will be directed by Snakes on a Plane’s David Ellis and produced by The Bachelor‘s Mike Fleiss. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Moore will play “a socially awkward guy who fancies himself a young Brad Pitt” in the film, which centers on friends who spend a weekend at a Louisiana lake that becomes feeding grounds for sharks, thanks to greedy locals with an agenda. The script is penned by Jesse Studenberg and Will Hayes, the latter of whom’s credits include Best Week Ever with Paul F. Tompkins and Assy McGee, according to the IMDB. Moore is joined by The O.C.‘s Chris Carmack, Sinqua Walls (Friday Night Lights), and Alyssa Diaz (the upcoming remake of Red Dawn).

As someone who watches Jaws 3-D every time it’s on TV, I cannot pretend I’m above seeing this. If the Bones producers were smart, they’d take the piss out of themselves for last season’s Avatar ad, and work in a more clever nod to this film, even if 20th Century Fox isn’t the studio behind it. Suggestions? Perhaps a gruesome murder could occur in the top row of a poorly-attended midnight showing of Shark Night 3-D. The victim would have gone to see the film alone — what I will no doubt have to do — and that’s why he or she needs to be identified. I’ve been in a large movie theater before with only a couple of other people, and the thought did cross my mind that I was vulnerable. It’s dark and loud, you’re engrossed in the movie (especially if it’s 3-D), and you wouldn’t see someone approach you. Any other ideas?
