Ben Wheatley Talks ‘The Meg 2’ and the “Insanely Large Scale” We Can Expect from His Biggest Movie Yet

The director of Kill List, SightseersA Field in EnglandHigh-Rise, Rebecca, and new movie In the Earth, Ben Wheatley will next be directing shark attack sequel The Meg 2 for Warner Bros.

Speaking with ComicBook.com this week, Wheatley touched upon the massive scale of the upcoming action-horror sequel, as well as playing in an already-established sandbox.

A lot of it is respecting The Meg, and trying to make sure it’s a great Meg film,” Wheatley tells the site. “And as you can see from the movies I’ve made, they’re not necessarily… it’s not… when you go and do Doctor Who, I don’t completely change it because I wanted to do it. I didn’t want to necessarily make it something completely different that nobody recognized, you know? So there’s that element of back and forth.”

Wheatley continues, “But it’s an opportunity to do action on such an insanely large scale, that it’s just unbelievable. From doing Free Fire, which was, I thought, was all my Christmases came at once in terms of action, this is just unbelievable. And just doing the storyboards for it, just thinking and going, ‘Oh,’ it’s just … I feel a heavy responsibility for it, to make sure that it kind of delivers on all the, to all the big shark fans out there.”

The Meg star Jason Statham is expected to return and have creative involvement.

The script has been written by Dean Georgaris and Jon & Erich Hoeber.

Jon Turteltaub’s The Meg, based on Steve Alten’s Meg novels, was released in theaters back in 2018, devouring over $500 million at the worldwide box office. Jason Statham starred as heroic shark-slayer Jonas Taylor, part of a group of scientists exploring the Mariana Trench who encounter the largest marine predator that has ever existed – the Megalodon.
