Bestselling Shark Thriller Meg Coming to Theaters

Bestselling Shark Thriller Meg Coming to Theaters
"Meg", the New York Times bestselling novel written by Steve Alten, will be getting a big screen adaptation. The book, released 20 years ago, is about a giant, prehistoric shark threatening the California Coast.

Eli Roth is reportedly in talks to direct the film, with Belle Avery producing through her banner Apelles Entertainment, and Colin Wilson producing through Maeday Productions. The screenplay was written by Dean Georgaris.

The film will take a different approach than the book - this time, the Megaladon will be terrorizing the coast of China. 

Roth will be hosting Discovery Channel's "Shark After Dark" as well as "Shark Week," which begins July 5. The actor/director will be seen swimming with sharks.
