So does this mean we'll get a MEG 225m OW club? :P

My passion for this project is much in the same way FURY ROAD was to Telemacho.. Let's hope this will at least turn out 1/2 as good.. Maybe we can see Jason Statham do a rendition of this while fighting this 70 foot Great White:

If I had the time and the energy, I'd turn that into a MEG gif. :rofl:

Here's a pretty good fan made movie of this, that gives me a lot of hope that with a decent budget, this could look Amazing.. Still, in my world, I feel they should spend at the very least, 300M which is pretty much going to have to be all CGI right down to the water FX.. No more scale models like when JAWS was made in 1975..

First Blake Lively fights a shark, now Jason Statham fights one too. What a world we live in.

So, when can we expect a 225m OW club for this?

:rofl: Tele already beat you to this question.. No.. My 200M Plus Clubs are done, with the exception of EPISODE VIII 235M OW Club which the MODS have locked until said time to re-open it.. Something like this, I'd have to see a trailer 1st and foremost.. Like I said, there going to have to spend a decent amount of $$$ on this to make it look good, everything right down to the water FX cause that's pretty much what this will end up being is all CGI.. If the FX House that did the whale FX for IN THE HEART OF THE SEA is used for this, I'll be happy cause that's the 1 thing that was good in that movie were the whale FX.. It looked very believable... MEG is sort of going to have that uphill battle to climb in wiping out the bad taste of the dumb SyFy Channel movies in their "VS" Series...

Those SyFy movies are such dumb fun, I'm sure people can separate a serious project from something like that in their minds.

 

Well, let's wait for the trailer as you said, but to be honest I don't see a big market for a shark blockbuster these days.

I know it's WB and they can't control budgets. But $300m....get a grip.

 

They should keep this to max $100m. If Statham is their biggest star, then salaries aren't going to be too big.

100M wouldn't even begin to touch the price of the FX for the water.. Seriously, 100M for the FX would make this suck as bad as the SyFy Channel movies, so why not have a little faith in this since it's been  20 years in the making and spend some $$$$ on it to make it all the more better???

Come on, man. Deep Blue Sea cost like 50 mill, came out 20 years ago, and still looked great (except for the Sam Jackson death scene).

If you think the Syfy movies cost $100m you know very little.

Key Phrase is 20 years ago.. FX have come a long way since then that can make this look even better..

This is a pretty good read with a video of a 9 foot Great White being eaten whole by something that they said could be a living Megalodon.. Shark Week has ran this, but it's something to give thought to..

Jason Statham is going to have his hands full fighting this thing.. Of course, nothing a missile from an F-18 won't fix..:popcorn:
