Jason Statham battling a giant, prehistoric shark. If that sentence doesn't excite you beyond measure, you need to re-evaluate your life. That's right, next summer action movie star Jason Statham will star in The Meg as Captain Jonas Taylor, a former Navy captain and diver, who is sent to rescue a team of scientists who have become trapped in their deep sea research station after disturbing a gigantic prehistoric shark - a Megalodon. The $150+ million blockbuster is being directed by Jon Turteltaub, who explained a little of the film's plot to Empire for their latest feature:
Think of it as a blind alley of evolution, our fish found a haven in the unexplored ocean, and has only just been disturbed after all this time.
The Meg will arrive in theaters on August 10th, 2018! Be sure to check back for more updates on the film's cast, plot, images and upcoming trailers!
