Given that he's on TV screens now fending off ravenous creatures after his tender flesh for Fear The Walking Dead, Cliff Curtis should feel right at home in giant Shark thriller Meg. He's joining Jason Statham in the watery thriller's cast.

Meg, adapted from Steve Alten's 1997 novel, will follow Statham's Navy man, still carrying the scars of an attack by a Megalodon, a prehistoric shark ancestor that somehow survived to modern times. His last encounter left his team dead and his military career ripped to shreds, but he's called back into action when an international underwater observation program led by Chinese scientists encounters the same beast after a volcanic eruption released it from an underwater trench into open water.

Curtis is aboard to play the Operations Chief of the Mana One unit, working alongside the likes of Ruby Rose, Jessica McNamee, Rainn Wilson, Masi Oka and Li Bingbing. Jon Turteltaub is gearing up to direct the movie, which is backed by China's Gravity Pictures and Warner Bros., which will share financing and distribution for a planned 2018 release.
