MEG Harpoons a Leading Lady

MEG - Oceanic Horror - Steve Alten - Nightstalkers

In the latest round of casting news for the big screen adaptation of Steve Alten’s MEG, Wicked Horror has learned that actress Fan Bingbing (X Men: Days of Future Past) will be joining Jason Statham in the giant shark tale.

At one point, Eli Roth was attached to helm the project, but as we recently told you, National Treasure director Jon Turteltaub has been announced as Roth’s replacement.

Turteltaub will direct from a script penned by Belle Avery and Dean Georgaris. Steve Alten’s novel tells the story of two men that band together to face a Megalodon, a creature thought to be long extinct, that surfaces in modern day and wreaks unspeakable havoc everywhere it goes.

Warner Brothers has now set a release date of March 2, 2018. So, after decades of attempting to get this feature before cameras, it looks like it is finally going to happen. Stay tuned to the site in the coming months for more on this upcoming project as details roll in! And in the meantime, let us know your thoughts on this latest development in the comments section below!
