An international underwater observation program, led by Chinese scientists, is under attack by an unknown danger, and its deep-sea submersible lies disabled and trapped at the bottom of the Mariana Trench. With time running out, former Naval Captain and expert deep sea diver Jonas Taylor (Statham) is recruited by Dr. Zhang Suyin, lead oceanographer of the program, for what is likely a suicide mission.

Years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying threat, which forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew, resulting in disgrace and a dishonorable discharge. Now, Taylor must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below … bringing him face to face once more with the apex predator of all time.

  • Originally had a March 2nd 2018 release.
  • Filming in New Zealand. (10/13/16)
  • Cliff Curtis (Fear the Walking Dead) plays "the Operations Chief aboard the Mana One."
  • Chinese actress Bingbing Li (Resident Evil: Retribution, Transformers: Age of Extinction) is in talks to have a role in the film.
  • Rainn Wilson (NBC's The Office) plays "Jack Morris, a tech billionaire who funds an underwater observation program that unwittingly unleashes the Carcharodon megalodon – a 70-foot, 40-ton prehistoric cousin of the great white."
  • Chinese actress Bingbing Fan (X-Men: Days of Future Past) had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.
  • Jon Turteltaub (National Treasure movies) directs.
  • At one point Eli Roth (Cabin Fever, Hostel) was in talks to direct.
  • It's said that the film's setting will take place on the cost of China instead of California.

  • A film version has reportedly been in development since the novel was released. Apparently it was first set up at Disney in 1997, but fell into limbo after Disney was unable to go into production before another shark pic, Deep Blue Sea, hit theaters unsuccessfully.
  • Based on the 1997 novel Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror by Steve Alten.
