Hot of directing a new adaptation of ‘Rebecca’ for Netflix, Ben Wheatley has signed on to helm ‘The Meg 2’ for Warner Bros.
The original giant shark film made over half a billion at the worldwide box office so it is no surprise that a sequel is coming. Jason Statham looks set to return to star.
Wheatley looks to be a favourite of Warner Bros. as he is also making a ‘Tomb Raider’ sequel for them. His previous films include ‘Kill List’, ‘Sightseers’ and ‘Free Fire’. ‘The Meg 2’ will be his biggest project to date.
No production or release schedule has been announced.
