Although he’s been making movies for over a decade, the past few years have seen Denis Villeneuve explode in the best possible way. The one-two punch of Enemy and Prisoners in 2013 firmly established him as a director with serious staying power. 2015’s Sicario only cemented him as one the most exciting filmmakers suddenly being handed larger budgets and given the chance to work with major actors. It’s no surprise that he was officially handed the keys to that long-gestating Blade Runner sequel – he’s the real deal.
However, Villeneuve has another science fiction film coming our way before he takes us back to the rainy, neon world of Replicants. We’ve been hearing interesting things about his new alien drama Story of Your Life for a few months now and it looks like Paramount is getting ready to finally start introducing this ambitious-sounding project to the world: it has a new title and a release date.

It looks like Meg may have finally crawled its way out of development hell. An adaptation of Steve Alten‘s Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror has been in the works for a long time now, but the budget, time and time again, has proved to be an issue. In 2007, millions of dollars were spent on Jan de Bont‘s (Speed) version of the project before New Line pulled the plug. Eli Roth recently ran into similar issues on Meg. After Roth had exited the project, Jon Turteltaub took over the film.
Once The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Cool Runnings director became attached to the adaptation, things began to look up for Meg, which landed the all-powerful Jason Statham and superstar Fan Bingbing (X-Men Days of Future Past) as its two leads.
