‘Tiburón’ went on to become the highest grossing movie in history when it premiered in 1975, for what little it took to start a second delivery that landed in the cinemas three years later. However, Steven Spielberg chose not to participate in the same, although at first yes, that was willing to do it, though with a condition that the producers would not accept.
Everyone who has seen ‘Jaws’ surely remember the scene in which the character played by Robert Shaw told the real story of the USS Indianapolis, and how most of the crew was at the mercy of the sharks. Mark Ramsey has revealed in the podcast Shoot This Now that Spielberg suggested to make a prequel focusing on that and also what was the reaction of the study:
Initially contacted him to do a sequel ‘Shark’ and said “I will if you will about the Indianapolis”, they said “no” and he said “no”. It is as well as separated at that point.
come on, that Spielberg wanted to make a film very different, a drama based on real events that connected clearly with ‘Shark’ but that was in a line very different from that movie. The producers wanted something similar and chose not to have the director of ‘The devil on wheels’. The result of this was ‘Shark ‘ 2’, a sequel worthy but which contributed very little to what we had already seen in the first installment.
Later he would make two sequels more, all of them raising less than the previous one, before Universal to give an end to the franchise in 1987. I weird a lot of that in all this time no one has tried to put a new adaptation of the original novel of Peter Benchley. We’ll have to make do with ‘Megalodón’ and to see Jason Statham faced with a giant shark.
