Synopsis

Two hundred miles off the Chinese coast, a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark called megalodon, thought to be long extinct, rises from the depths of the ocean and attacks a research submersible, leaving its crew stranded. Diver Jonas Taylor (Statham)—who has encountered the monster before—is called into action to help rescue the crew and stop the meaty monster before it attacks the mainland. But will the team's friendship survive a giant shark?

This film is based on the novel Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror by Steve Alten. The rights to the book were initially acquired by Disney in 1997, but nothing came of it. By the time The Meg was ready for production, Warner Bros. was set to distribute. At one point, Eli Roth was in talks to direct, but he ended up passing on the project. Principal photography started in October 2016 and ran through January 2017.
