Hollywood: Prehistoric Shark Movie ‘The Meg’

News by:

After two decades in the deep waters of development, prehistoric shark actioner “The Meg� is finally ready to swim into the late-summer box office.
Steve Alten, the author of the novel on which the film is based, thought many times over that the project might sink without a ripple. When Alten was 15 in 1975, he became a huge fan of Steven Spielberg’s smash hit “Jaws� — which inspired him to begin exploring the idea of a giant prehistoric shark species somehow surviving in today’s world.
