Production is getting underway on the sequel to 2018’s big-budget shark attack thriller The Meg. According to KFTV, The Meg 2: The Trench begins filming in the UK the week of January 24th, with shooting slated to run through late May.
Ben Wheatley (In the Earth, A Field in England) is in the director’s chair for the sequel, which was penned by Dean Georgaris and Jon and Erich Hoeber. Jason Statham will reprise the role of Jonas Taylor and is said to be more creatively involved this time around.
What will a Wheatley-directed shark movie look like? Bloody, we hope!
