It's been too long, but the production wheels are finally turning for The Meg 2, as star and professional prehistoric shark-puncher, Jason Statham, reveals that the sequel to the aquatic monster movie is set to start filming next January
Steve Weintraub recently spoke with the only man capable of facing a Megalodon with his bare fists about his role in the new Guy Ritchie film, Wrath of Man, but also took the time to ask about Statham's other projects, including the anticipated sequel to The Meg (no? Is it just me? Fine). Not only does Statham confirm he's returning for the sequel, but he also praises Ben Wheatley, who has signed on to return the creature feature.
"We're gonna start shooting in January, if I get my dates right. Ben Wheatley is the director, I'm very excited to work with him. I'm thrilled to get going, it's been a while. We've been waiting around for the right scripts to come in and the right director to turn up, and we've got all those things and they're all stacked up now."
