- David Brown and Richard D. Zanuck, producers of the first two films, originally pitched this as a spoof under the title of "National Lampoon's Jaws 3, People 0". This was based on a suggestion by Matty Simmons and John Hughes and was about a movie studio trying to make a second sequel to Jaws (1975). It opened with author Peter Benchley being eaten in his pool by a shark and included a naked Bo Derek and shark-costumed aliens. Joe Dante was attached as director. The idea was crushed by Steven Spielberg, who threatened to walk from his deal with Universal. As it was, when Zanuck and Brown learned that their comedy was halted, they quit the studio.
Director Joe Alves was suggested to helm the film by veteran editor Verna Fields, who won an Oscar for editing the first film.
This film features the largest of the sharks featured in the "Jaws" movies. It was 35 feet long compared with its predecessors which were about 25 feet.
Dennis Quaid would later refer to this movie in an interview as "I was in Jaws what?"
In later interviews, writer Richard Matheson claimed that the film was bedeviled with script doctors that ruined the central premise of a white shark swimming upstream and becoming trapped in a lake.
