Meg Sequel is in the Works at Warner Bros. Pictures

Some surprising news was released today & it surprisingly isn’t about Hollywood rebooting or remaking another film. While speaking at the US-China Entertainment, Summit Catherine Xujun Ying, producer on the film, revealed that a sequel to this year’s Meg is in the early stages of development.

Ying said told the press:

“It’s still in the very early stages, but we’re working on it. We’re trying to keep it secret at this time.”

Although the film was not well-received by moviegoers, it looks like it made enough for Warner Bros. Pictures to greenlight a sequel. MEG was directed by Jon Turteltaub with a screenplay by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber, & Erich Hoeber, 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, & Cliff Curtis.

Three hundred kilometers off the Chinese coast, a 22 meters long prehistoric shark called Megalodon, thought to be long extinct, rises from the depths of the ocean and attacks a research submersible, leaving its crew stranded. Diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) – who has encountered the monster before – is called into action to help rescue the crew and stop the monster before it attacks the mainland and eats those that are offshore.
