Meg 2: The Trench (2023)

Dive into uncharted waters with Jason Statham and global action icon Wu Jing as they lead a daring research team on an exploratory dive into the deepest depths of the ocean. Their voyage spirals into chaos when a malevolent mining operation threatens their mission and forces them into a high-stakes battle for survival. Pitted against colossal Megs and relentless environmental plunderers, our heroes must outrun, outsmart, and outswim their merciless predators in a pulse-pounding race against time.


Filmed in the UK, specifically at the Warner Bros.-owned Leavesden Studios outside London, where the Harry Potter and Batman franchises were also shot.

Also known as The Meg 2: The Trench.

Li Bingbing was originally said to be returning as character Suyin, but that fell through for unknown reasons.

Sergio Peris-Mencheta is playing “one of the film’s antagonists, a hard-edged mercenary.”

Sienna Guillory plays “the head of an applied sciences division.”

Skyler Samuels plays “an adventure-loving member of Statham’s submarine crew.”

Cliff Curtis, Shuya Sophia Cai and Page Kennedy are all reprising their roles.

According to Jason Statham not only will his character from the first movie return, but filming is expected to begin sometime in January 2022. Here’s what the actor had to say in a recent interview: “We’re gonna start shooting in January if I get my dates right. Ben Wheatley is the director. I’m very excited to work with him. I’m thrilled to get going. Its been a while. We’ve been waiting around for the right scripts to come in and the right director to turn up, and we’ve got all those things, and they’re all stacked up now. [Wheatley’s] great. We have a great shorthand already. We’ve got similar taste. I like his movies. I think he’s a brilliant director. I think we’ve got a good shot at making something good.” (4/28/21)
