Director of the sequel to the Jason Statham led The Meg, Ben Wheatley recently teased insane, large scale action for the Mega Shark sequel in a previous interview with ComicBook. Wheatley addressed that first and foremost his goal with the Meg sequel however is to honor the original movie and respect the source material:
A lot of it is respecting The Meg, and trying to make sure it's a great Meg film and as you can see from the movies I've made, they're not necessarily, it's not ... when you go and do Doctor Who, I don't completely change it because I wanted to do it. I didn't want to necessarily make it something completely different that nobody recognized, you know? So there's that element of back and forth.
He then goes on to explain how the action present in the sequel will be that of epic proportions:
But it's an opportunity to do action on such an insanely large scale, that it's just unbelievable. From doing Free Fire, which was, I thought, was all my Christmases came at once in terms of action, this is just unbelievable. And just doing the storyboards for it, just thinking and going, 'Oh,' it's just ... I feel a heavy responsibility for it, to make sure that it kind of delivers on all the, to all the big shark fans out there.
