Meg 2: The Trench is a science fiction action film, directed by Ben Wheatley with a screenplay by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber, and Erich Hoeber, loosely based on the 1999 book The Trench by Steve Alten. Serving as a sequel to the 2018 film, the film is expected to star Jason Statham.

In April 2018, Jason Statham said a The Meg sequel would happen if the film did well with the public, saying "I think it's like anything in this day and age — if it makes money, there's obviously an appetite to make more money. And if it doesn't do well, they'll soon sweep it under the carpet. But that's the way Hollywood works."[1]

In August 2018, Steve Alten said "My feeling has always been that this is a billion dollar franchise if it was done right. But to be done right you had to get the shark right, get the cast right, get the tone right. And Warner Bros. have nailed it completely. The producers have nailed it."[2] In October 2018, executive producer Catherine Xujun Ying announced a sequel was in the early stages of development.[3] In March 2019, it was announced that a script for the film was in the works.[4] In his September 2020 newsletter, Steve Alten confirmed the script, titled Meg 2: The Trench, to be complete, expressing interest in its "dark" tone and potential for an R-rating.[5] On October 23, 2020, Ben Wheatley was announced to direct.[6]
