Check out Jason Statham on the set of Meg!

Meg Jason Statham Li Bingbing

Jon Turtletaub's MEG has taken to the seas, commencing production this week off the coast of New Zealand. I'm still having a little trouble believing the fact that we'll soon be getting a movie where Jason Statham battles a giant dinosaur shark, but the latest photo that has dropped on set proves that it's definitely happening. Check out the image below, which depicts Statham and co-star Li Binging together in the control room of a ship. Check it out below!

Adapted by Dean Georgaris and James Vanderbilt from the 1997 novel by Steve Alten, MEG will center on:

an international underwater observation program, led by Chinese scientists, which comes under attack by an unknown danger. With its deep-sea submersible disabled and trapped at the bottom of the Mariana Trench, they need rescue. A former naval captain and expert deep-sea diver is recruited for a likely suicide mission — even though he faced the predator years before and was forced him to abort his mission and abandon half his crew.

MEG will also star Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, and Jessica McNamee.

A co-production of Warner Bros. and China-based Gravity Pictures, MEG will hit theaters on March 2, 2018.
