Back on April 14, Collinder’s Steve Weintraub was able to speak with Ben Wheatley about his upcoming pandemic-inspired horror film, In the Earth, only later to touch on what sparked Wheatley’s desire to create a sequel to blockbuster hit, The Meg. Wheatley did say that the sequel was about four months into development but when pressed for information on filming, and a possible start date, Wheatley had no answer.
Recently we got a little closer to that answer when Weintraub sat down with Jason Statham to talk about his upcoming film, Wrath of Man. “We’re gonna start shooting in January, if I get my dates right,” says Statham. “Ben Wheatley is the director, I’m very excited to work with him.”
Good news for fans of 2018’s blockbuster hit, The Meg but bad news for CGI sharks, as we may have another oceanic blockbuster come summer of 2022.
