The upcoming killer shark flick MEG will be hitting us all on August 10th of next year. But before we all get too excited about that we have news that the author of MEG has another monster movie in the works, and this one sounds like a blast.
To clarify, the upcoming Jason Statham vs shark flick MEG is based off a book by author Steve Alten. Alten also wrote a book in 2005 called THE LOCH, which - you guessed it - centers around the Loch Ness Monster!
Bloody Disgusting got the scoop after having a chat with Alten who told them:
Belle Avery, the lead producer on MEG, is working with her Chinese producers to bring The LOCH to the big screen. Screenwriter and director are their first priorities… and they are speaking to some serious talent.
Sounds good to me! I'm thinking the Loch Ness Monster is one of the great mythological monsters that has yet to have a good movie made from the tale. Now is time, right? Especially considering it's been quite a few years since that one SOUTH PARK episode...
Below you can find the synopsis for Steve Alten's THE LOCH novel and the trailer for the book (yeah, they do that if you didn't know) at the very bottom.
THE LOCH synopsis:
Marine biologist Zachary Wallace once suffered a near-drowning experience in legendary Loch Ness, and now, long-forgotten memories of that experience have begun haunting him. The truth surrounding these memories lies with Zachary’s estranged father, Angus Wallace, a wily Highlander on trial for murder. Together the two plunge into a world where the legend of Loch Ness shows its true face.
