Jason Statham has faced off against all types of enemies on the big screen. The action star is ready to take on his next challenge, a 75-foot shark in the deep sea thriller Meg.
The new picture from The Meg has Jason Statham front and center, surrounded by the crew and things don’t look like they’re going very well. The crew includes Page Kennedy (DJ), Li Bingbing (Suyin), Ruby Rose (Jaxx Herd), and Cliff Curtis (James). Rainn Wilson also stars in the movie, but he is not shown in the new picture. The movie is based off Steve Alten’s 1997 book entitled Meg and the picture is taken from the inside of the doomed ship at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.

Statham spoke with Empire about the upcoming summer sci-fi film. “Who doesn’t want to watch a film about the biggest shark that’s ever existed?” said Statham. The film is an adaption of The adaptation of Steve Alten’s 1997 novel Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror and is directed by Jon Turteltaub.
The Meg was originally slated to come out in March of 2018, but it was later pushed back to August of 2018, which was probably done to tie into the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. This movie seems tailor-made for fans of Shark Week.
The Meg is slated to land in theaters on August 10, 2018
