It looks like the sequel to 2018’s shark movie Meg is picking up speed. Titled Meg 2: The Trench, the film has now added Sienna Guillory, who recently appeared in Clifford the Big Red Dog, The Gifted‘s Skyler Samuels, and Snowfall‘s Sergio Peris-Mencheta. They will join Jason Statham, who is set to return to face off against another megalodon in the upcoming sequel. At least that is what we theorize given that the plot still remains under wraps.
It seems safe with the title that we’ll get another megalodon, but who knows how many might find their way to the surface this time around once they enter the mysterious trench teased in the title. All week now about are the roles the new additions will take on. Peris-Mencheta will play one of the film’s antagonists, who is a hard-edged mercenary. Samuels is a new member of Stathams‘ crew while Guillory plays the head of an applied sciences division.
Sophia Cai, Page Kennedy, and Cliff Curtis are also going to return to the franchise in the upcoming sequel. The film is already filming in the United Kingdom with Ben Wheatley at the helm after his work on High-Rise. It’ll be interesting to see if the film manages to go even more over-the-top than the previous entry.
