Cliff Curtis may be on hiatus between seasons of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead, but he's not going to stray away from working with man-eating creatures in the interim. The actor has just signed on to co-star with Jason Statham, Ruby Rose, Rainn Wilson, Li Bingbing, and Jessica McNamee in the long-awaited cinematic adaptation of the 1997 Steve Alten novel MEG.

Statham plays a

Navy deep-sea diver whose military career ended in disgrace after his team encountered a living Megalodon, a prehistoric ancestor of the shark believed to reach up to 60 feet in length. With his team destroyed by the beast, he soon is offered a chance at redemption when an international underwater observation program led by Chinese scientists encounters the same beast after a volcanic eruption released it from an underwater trench into open water.

Curtis's character is the Operations Chief aboard the Mana One, which I assume is the deep-sea submersible the prehistoric shark attacks, but I could be wrong.

MEG is being directed by Jon Turtletaub from a screenplay by Dean Georgaris and James Vanderbilt.

His character on Fear the Walking Dead isn't exactly the greatest, but Curtis is a very solid actor, so I'm glad to see him joining the cast of MEG and look forward to watching him face off with the title shark.
