Jason Statham vs. shark movie Meg gets its release date pushed back

03.03.2017

SHARKNADO has kind of ruined sharks for me. While I still love JAWS, and even have some nostalgia for DEEP BLUE SEA, I feel sharks are a bit overplayed at this point. But that hasn't stopped Hollywood from beating a concept to the ground before (read: zombie), so a new movie MEG - about a giant, prehistoric shark terrorizing people - is coming out soon.

But not as soon as everyone anticipated! The shark movie, starring Jason Statham, was supposed to be released March 2nd, 2018, but has been pushed back five months for undisclosed reasons to August 10th, 2018​. The film also stars Ruby Rose and Rainn Wilson, and will be helmed by 3 NINJAS director Jon Turteltaub.

Like I said, I'm kind of burnt out on sharks, but I can't deny that I'm excited about seeing Jason Statham fight one. And apparently in the novel the film is based on, Jason Statham's character rips a hole in the side of the shark, swims in its innards, and crushes the shark's heart to death. Dude, that's metal-as-fuck. I'd be down to see that in IMAX. 

But what about you Schmoes? You guys excited for a Jason Statham vs. shark match-up? Either way, sound off below!

Extra Tidbit: MEG is short for the prehistoric shark "Megalodon".

Giant shark rears up behind Statham ready to eat him.
He turns around with a rocket launcher, "Shut Up, Meg!"

However you describe this film, it just sounds really SyFy Channel.

The author mentions Jaws...

but The Reef was actually better than Jaws. That was an intense movie. I think it's so far the most realistic shark movie to date, and Open Water also.

Wow, I have literally been hearing about this movie for like the past 15 years at least. I remember cuz I was looking into Shane Salerno, and he written this on spec around the time he wrote shaft I think

I hope there's a scene where Jason turns to the shark and says "Shut Up Meg" just before it explodes. Cuz how else where they planning on killing a GIANT SHARK!?
