That lethal leviathan will have to wait awhile for its next close-up.

Meg 2The Trench–the sequel to the Jason Statham-led undersea thriller–this week was set for an Aug. 4, 2023 theatrical release, according to a report on Deadline.

The sequel–directed by Ben Wheatley from a screenplay by returning screenwriters Dean Georgaris and Erich and Jon Hoeber–is shooting at the Leavesden Studios outside London until May, when production is expected to shift to outdoor locations–probably somewhere in Asia.

Joining Statham in the cast are the returning Cliff Curtis, Shuya Sophia Cai and Page Kennedy, along with newcomers Sienna Guillory, Skyler Samuels, Sergio Peris-Mencheta and Wu Jing.

The original The Meg–directed by Jon Turtelbaum and based on Steve Alten’s 1997 MegA Novel of Deep Terror–follows a U.S. Navy diver (Statham) who sets out to rescue a group of scientists from a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark known as a megalodon. The film reeled in $530 million worldwide on a $150-million budget.
