Warner Bros. Pictures has now announced that the prehistoric giant shark film Meg, directed by John Turteltaub, has caught a new title, The Meg.
Action star Jason Statham (The Expendables franchise) appears alongside actress Li Bingbing (Transformers: Age of Extinction), Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Masi Oka, Robert Taylor, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, and Sophia Shuya Cai.
In the film, which has already wrapped filming in New Zealand, “a deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep-sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.”
The Meg will be swimming your way on August 10, 2018.
