First published back in 1997 and with a film adaptation stuck in development hell pretty much ever since, it has been frankly years since there’s been any movement on the film adaptation of Steve Alten’s 1997 giant prehistoric shark novel “MEG”.
Yesterday, The Tracking Board reported that the project is now at Warner Bros. Pictures and is reportedly moving forward there as a “priority development”.
The story follows two men from opposite points of view that are forced to band together in order to neutralize the terror that’s threatening the California coast – the Carcharodon megalodon, a giant prehistoric shark that could literally eat a Tyrannosaurus Rex in seconds.
At last report, Dean Georgaris (“The Manchurian Candidate”) had penned the latest draft of the script. The report also lists Colin Wilson (“Jurassic Park,” “Avatar”) and Belle Avery as producers.
