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.
Learn more about the Jason Statham shark movie below.

After releasing just four films in four decades, Terrence Malick suddenly became much more prolific starting with 2011’s Tree of Life. To the Wonder and Knight of Cups followed in quick succession, and Weightless should be coming along in the not-too-distant future.
Even as he’s picked up his pace, though, he’s taken his good sweet time with Voyage of Time, a documentary which aims to the entire story of the universe. And by “taken his good sweet time,” we mean this film has been in the works, off and on, for the past 30 years. But happily, it looks like we’re finally reaching the light at the end of the tunnel. Voyage of Time has officially been set for a fall 2016 IMAX release. Read More »
