After next year’s Meg, we will soon find more horror in The Loch.
Set for release on August 10th of next year, the Jason Statham-starring Meg is of course an adaptation of the same-named novel penned by Steve Alten, centered on a massive Megalodon shark. It’ll be the very first Alten novel arriving on the big screen… but if all goes according to plan, it won’t be the only one.
We caught up with Alten for a little chat this morning, wherein he revealed to us that his 2005 novel The Loch is also being developed as a feature film!
“Belle Avery, the lead producer on MEG, is working with her Chinese producers to bring The LOCH to the big screen,” Alten told us. “Screenwriter and director are their first priorities… and they are speaking to some serious talent.”
In The Loch…
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.
Stay tuned for more info on this one!
