Out promoting his latest “Wrath of Man”, actor Jason Statham says one of the next projects on his dance card is a sequel to prehistoric shark hit “The Meg”.
Speaking with Collider, the actor says the studio is prepping for an early 2022 start.
“We’re gonna start shooting in January if I get my dates right. Ben Wheatley is the director. I’m very excited to work with him.
I’m thrilled to get going. Its been a while. We’ve been waiting around for the right scripts to come in and the right director to turn up, and we’ve got all those things, and they’re all stacked up now.
[Wheatley’s] great. We have a great shorthand already. We’ve got similar taste. I like his movies. I think he’s a brilliant director. I think we’ve got a good shot at making something good.”
“The Meg” grossed over $530 million.
