Jason Statham to star in 'Meg'

Warner Bros.' Giant Shark Project 'Meg' Begins Filming with Jason Statham

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Filming has begun on Meg, the long in development monster movie about a giant shark. The film is being directed by Jon Turteltaub following Eli Roth's departure last year, and it stars Jason Statham in the lead role.

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.

Filming is taking place in New Zealand before moving on to China. The cast also includes Li Bingbing, Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, Page Kennedy, Jessica McNamee, Ólafur Darris Ólafsson, Sophia Shuya Cai, and Heroes alum Masi Oka.

The film is slated for March 2, 2018.
