In the film, a deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.

PROJECT DETAILS
  • 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.
  • The novel and movie would feature a Megaladon, which is considered to be "one of the largest and most powerful predators in history, can reach a maximum length of 60 feet."
  • 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.
