Stay out of the Water, Meg is Coming!Goon
New Line Cinema has just picked up the rights to Steve Alten's horror adventure, "Meg". The book was originally published in 1997 and was followed by two sequels. New Line has tapped Jan de Bont to helm the project which is being put on the fast track.
The story features a 80-foot-long prehistoric shark -- scientifically known as Carcharodon megalodon and believed by some to be an ancestor of the great white shark -- which terrorizes the California coast. Two men from opposite points of view are forced to come together to neutralize the threat.
