Action star Jason Statham has signed on to star in “Meg,” the long in the works prehistoric shark creature feature at Warner Bros. Pictures and Chinese company Gravity.
Jon Turteltaub (“National Treasure”) is directing the film in which the antagonist is the Carcharodon Megalodon, the 70-foot, 40-ton prehistoric kin to the great white shark.
The film has been in the works for about two decades, beginning life as a book by Steve Alten. Turteltaub and Jamie Vanderbilt penned the latest draft of the script, while Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Colin Wilson will produce.
