Jason Statham To Fight Megalodon Shark In Meg


Star actor Jason Statham is all set to take his fight sequence to a new level, as he will be seen combating with a prehistoric Megalodon shark in his upcoming shark thriller movie. Titled as Meg, the movie is a Warner Bros project and will be directed by National Treasure fame Jon Turteltaub.

Dean Georgaris is likely to pen down the screenplay, rewriting from the original book 'Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror.' by Steve Alten.

In the movie, Statham will be seen portraying the character of 'Jonas Taylor', a disgraced military diver and officer, who is in an attempt to regain his glory, and joins a band of Chinese scientists to end the nemesis in the form of a giant prehistoric Megalodon shark.

The Megalodon sharks are considered to be one of the largest and most deadly predators in history, they can even reach a gigantic length of 60 feet or more.

This time around, the backdrop has been set to the coast of China rather than USA- a much tactical change to rope in Gravity Pictures as the associate-financier.

The movie Meg was originally in the sight of Disney but failed to come up as a project due to internal issues. However, this time, Warner Bros is moving ahead with the project and the movie is expected to hit theaters around mid-2018.
