‘The Meg 2’ Finds Director in ‘Rebecca’ Filmmaker Ben Wheatley

An 80-foot prehistoric shark is returning to the big screen with “The Meg 2,” and Warner Bros. has hired “Rebecca” filmmaker Ben Wheatley to direct.

Development of the sequel comes two years after “The Meg” took in an impressive $530 million worldwide. That film revolved around the monstrous megalodon emerging from the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the world’s oceans in the Pacific.

Jason Statham is expected to reprise his role from the first movie, in which he portrayed a U.S. Navy diver sent to rescue other divers from a shark attack. Statham was a world-class diver on the British Commonwealth team before becoming an actor.

Jon and Erich Hoeber wrote the most recent draft of the script, working off an initial draft by Dean Georgaris. The trio shared writing credits on the original. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Belle Avery are returning as producers. Avery worked on getting “The Meg” made for a decade, finally securing Chinese financing after making two dozen trips to China. Executive producers on the sequel are Catherine Ying, Li Ruigang, E. Bennett Walsh, Gerald Molen and Randy Greenberg.
