Jason Statham is headed for deep waters. Warner Bros. has announced that Meg, the thriller starring Statham as a former Navy captain and expert diver who battles a massive prehistoric shark, will hit theaters March 2, 2018.

Jon Turtletaub is directing the film, which is based on the novel by Steven Alten. Fan Bingbing (Iron Man 3, Buddha Mountain) will star opposite Statham.

Production will start later this year in China and New Zealand.

Meg is currently scheduled to open against Fox’s new Predator movie, which Shane Black is directing.
