Eli Roth In Talks for Giant Shark Movie – Meg!

Eli Roth saw the film world and thought - needs more sharks.

Eli Roth saw the film world and thought: needs more sharks.

If life has taught us anything, it’s that you can never have too many giant shark movies.

Eli Roth, King of Smart Splatter flicks, will apparently be bringing us Meg, an adaptation of Steve Alten’s New York Times bestseller about a prehistoric menace stalking the Californian coast (which will apparently be played by China in the movie).

Meg isn’t a personalized story of the giant shark – it’s short for Megalodon, an over-sized shark considered to be one of the largest predators in history, reaching lengths of up to 60 feet. The story follows a pair of “heroic” – or stupid – thrill seekers who set out to take down the giant beast before it can make a meal of swimmers.
