The Meg is an upcoming American-Chinese science fiction action horror film directed by Jon Turteltaub and written by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber, and Erich Hoeber. It is based on the 1997 science fiction book Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror by Steve Alten. The film stars Jason Statham, Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Winston Chao, and Cliff Curtis.
Two hundred miles off the Chinese coast, a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark called a megalodon, thought to be long dead, rises from the depths of the ocean and attacks a research submersible, leaving its crew stranded. Diver Jonas Taylor (Statham)—who has encountered the monster before—is called into action to help rescue the crew and stop the creature before it attacks the mainland.
