The giant shark movie ‘Meg’ is finished filming in New Zealand. Today, we have new images of action star Jason Statham via the NZ Herald.
The film is the big screen adaption of the novel ‘Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror’ by Steve Alten and is being directed by Jon Turteltaub (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, National Treasure).
Statham co-stars alongside model/actress Ruby Rose, Robert Taylor, Rainn Wilson, Masi Oka, Jessica McNamee, Page Kennedy and ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ actor Cliff Curtis.
The Official Synopsis:
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 film sounds awesome. Unfortunately, it will be a while before we see it. ‘Meg’ won’t swim into theaters until March 2, 2018.
