Filming is underway on Meg 2: The Trench, bringing with it a series of casting news. While a number of stars from the first film are back for the sequel, Variety reports that Li Bingbing (who played marine biologist Suyin Zhang) “is not returning to the franchise at this point.”
Jason Statham, Cliff Curtis, Sophia Cai, and Page Kennedy will be back, however. They’ll be joined this time around by Wu Jing (The Wandering Earth), Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil: Afterlife), Skyler Samuels (Scream Queens), and Sergio Peris-Mencheta (Rambo: Last Blood).
Ben Wheatley (A Field in England, In the Earth) is directing Meg 2: The Trench, which is a follow-up to the 2018 smash-hit action-horror The Meg. Dean Georgaris and Jon and Erich Hoeber wrote the sequel’s script.
