The book by Steve Altern “revolves around two men who band together to neutralize an ancient shark that’s threatening the California coast. The Megaladon, considered one of the largest and most powerful predators in history, can reach a maximum length of 60 feet. This time around the shark will be terrorizing the coast of China rather than California — a change that helped in bringing on Gravity Pictures as a co-financier. Andrew Fischel and Cate Adams will oversee development for Warner Bros.”
It’s been in development for almost 20 years so hopefully Roth can deliver the expectation and terror that should come with such a tale… we’ll be honest, the image above gives us nightmares already.
It is speculated that the success of Jurassic World is playing no small part in this movie being hurried into production.
We’ll keep you posted…
