Yeah he wasn't a good choice to start with. But at one point he was in, and the next week he was replaced without an official press release.

Warner Bros. Pictures has pushed Jon Turteltaub's giant shark film MEG back by five months. Originally set for a March 2nd 2018 bow, the film will now open late Summer – specifically August 10th 2018. The plan is also for a 3D and Imax release of the Jason Statham and Li Bingbing-led film adaptation of the Steve Alten novel.

In the film a deep-sea submersible – part of an international undersea observation program – has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct, and now lies disabled at the bottom of the deepest trench in the Pacific…with its crew trapped inside. With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew-and the ocean itself-from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon. What no one could have imagined is that, years before, Taylor had encountered this same terrifying creature. Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below… bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.

Cliff Curtis, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, Robert Taylor, Masi Oka, Jessica McNamee, Page Kennedy, Olafur Darri Olafsson and Sophia Shuya Cai co-star. Dean Georgaris and Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber penned the script while Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Belle Avery and Colin Wilson are producing.

Getting more excitement and attention than quite a few of his other films in recent years, the Jason Statham-led prehistoric shark thriller THE MEG hits this Summer and reaction to the first trailer the other week put the long-gestating film on many people's radar.

Based on Steve Alten's novel, the book was the first in a series and Statham tells EW that if audiences warm to it then there's room for a potential franchise: "I think it's like anything in this day and age — if it makes money, there's obviously an appetite to make more money. And if it doesn't do well, they'll soon sweep it under the carpet. But that's the way Hollywood works. Everyone tries to make a good film, and it lies in the hands of the audience. People are the ultimate decider; the audience is the decider of whether anything gets to be a sequel or not."

Statham plays diver Jonas Taylor who faces off with the 75-foot shark who has attacked and disabled a deep-sea submersible in the Pacific Ocean. Talking about his role, Statham says: "He gets brought in to save the crew at the bottom of the ocean that's confronted with this 75-foot shark. Taylor encountered this shark many years ago, but everyone thought he was crazy. Turns out, everybody was wrong!"

John Turteltaub is directing the film from a script by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber. THE MEG opens August 10th.
