Courtesy of the folks at Deadline, we can confirm that the shark-action hit The Meg is getting the sequel treatment. The Meg was released earlier this year and took a huge bite out of the box office, grossing over $500 million worldwide.
Starring Jason Statham, the film followed his character Jonas Taylor as he is forced to save the people in a trapped submersible when it is attacked by a 70-foot megalodon. It was hugely cheesy, but a great amount of fun so I’m looking forward to seeing more.
The plot is being kept under-wraps for the moment and there has been no confirmation of who will write, direct or star in the sequel. Fingers crossed we’ll see the return of Jason Statham and the first film’s director Jon Turteltaub.
