shark novels

Prehistoric Shark Thriller Meg is slated for release on August 10, 2018 by Warner Bros. Pictures, Gravity Pictures, Filming underway.

After almost twenty years in development hell, a film adaptation of Steve Alten’s 1997 shark thriller novel MEG has finally made it into production.

MEG Fans have waited so long to see this movie happen, including yours truly (If you never read my 2012 review of the novel MEG, you can do so here)
and if you have never heard of it, but love sharks and are fascinated with Carcharodon megalodon, then revel in the good news that Warner Bros. Pictures is moving forward with this prehistoric shark movie. It was revealed last month that Jason Statham had signed on to headline the thriller and very recently the studio has given the megalodon shark movie an August 10, 2018 release date.

In various stages of development for some time, the megalodon movie will be directed by National Treasure‘s Jon Turteltaub from a script by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spider-Man, Independence Day: Resurgence ((Can’t say I’m thrilled at the choice for script writer, but…))

THIS IS FINALLY HAPPENING

Based on Steve Alten‘s New York Times best-selling novel, Alten describes his 1997 novel as follows on his official site:

On a top-secret dive into the Pacific Ocean’s deepest canyon, Jonas Taylor found himself face-to-face with the largest and most ferocious predator in the history of the animal kingdom. The sole survivor of the mission, Taylor is haunted by what he’s sure he saw but still can’t prove exists – Carcharodon megalodon, the massive mother of the great white shark. The average prehistoric Meg weighs in at twenty tons and could tear apart a Tyrannosaurus rex in seconds.

Written off as a crackpot suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, Taylor refuses to forget the depths that nearly cost him his life. With a Ph.D. in paleontology under his belt, Taylor spends years theorizing, lecturing, and writing about the possibility that Meg still feeds at the deepest levels of the sea. But it takes an old friend in need to get him to return to the water, and a hotshot female submarine pilot to dare him back into a high-tech miniature sub.

Diving deeper than he ever has before, Taylor will face terror like he’s never imagined, and what he finds could turn the tides bloody red until the end of time. MEG is about to surface. When she does, nothing and no one is going to be safe, and Jonas must face his greatest fear once again.

Starring: Jason Statham, Li Bingbing (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Cliff Curtis (Fear The Walking Dead), Jessica McNamee , Rainn Wilson (The Office), Masi Oka (Heroes) and Ruby Rose

I’m a big fat NaNo Rebel - this has been my project since April and I’m using NaNo to try and finish it.

Urban fantasy

4) Describe your plot in one sentence. 
A fake psychic helps a boy break a real curse.

cursed, sarcastic, rule-follower

7) What book is your story similar to?

Priyanka because she would feed me.

Alright, I saw these photos in this post, and I just wanted to reiterate what I wrote on that post so that more people would have a chance to see it! I’m still looking up some of the other ones whose titles are a bit harder to make out, but let’s take a look at some of these…

1. GREEN (Enough said)
2. Frankenstein (Also enough said)
3. And Then Tiger Told the Shark is a novel full of golf stories. Why does this matter? Well…Anyone remember a golf course?
4. Wide is the Gate is a novel in a series by Upton Sinclair, and in this, one of the main characters, Trudy, supposedly loses her husband, Rudy, when he isarrested by the Gestapo. She doesn’t see him die, but is convinced he is dead. Sounds like another character we know who’s arrested by awful officers and presumed dead.
5. Black Spring. The info on this book was a bit vague, but as far as I could tell, the author who wrote this is known for exploring humanity and, more often,sexuality.
6. A Brief History of Nearly Everything. As far as I know, this book is unrelated.
7. DUSK And a Voice Singing. Okay. We all know a certain blonde who sings at dusk, once seen singing in a funeral parlor to a lonely country boy.If I find more relevant titles, I’ll alert you!!!

6. A Brief History of Nearly Everything. A brief history of nearly everything could possible be hinting that Beth will return, but with memory loss and she gets a brief history about who she is and who her family is and everything that has happened.

7. DUSK And a Voice Singing. Okay. We all know a certain blonde who sings at dusk, once seen singing in a funeral parlor to a lonely country boy.

SUBMISSION

So, I did a thing because I am hyped for your Sharks novel. I might make a kill team of these guys. Thoughts?

I literally spent a solid minute just staring at him. He’s perfect. I can only dream of creating such awesomeness myself, and it’s really great to know I helped to inspire him. Now he just needs some battle-brothers! ~ Robbie
