Orange is The New Black’ and Resident Evil’ famed star Ruby Rose has joined the cast of new shark epic MEG which is set for release the Spring of next year. The next shark film to swim into our Summer horror collections is based off of Steve Alten’s 1997 novel “MEG: A Novel Of Deep Terror”.
Rose joins Jason Statham, Jessica McNamee and Fan Bingbing in the picture, which is said to directed by Jon Turtletaub.
The movie is centered 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. Statham will portray a former naval captain and expert deep-sea diver, who’s 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.
The film will be co-financed by Flagship Entertainment; Gravity Pictures, a division of China Media Capital (CMC); and Warner Bros. Gravity Pictures will distribute the film in China, with Warner Bros. handling the film throughout the rest of the world.
Lorenzo Di Bonaventura, Belle Avery and Colin Wilson are producing. Executive producers are Wei Wayne Jiang, Barrie M. Osborne, Randy Greenberg and Gerald R. Molen.
Rose will play an engineering genius and a member of the marine research team.
Don’t go in the waters next Spring! MEG is slated for a March 2nd, 2018 release.
