Jessica McNamee recently played Sonya Blade in the new Mortal Kombat. But will she be back as Jason Statham’s ex in Ben Wheatley’s upcoming The Meg 2?
Read her comments below.
She tells Collider: “I don’t even know! […] I’m a terrible person. That would be the dream. I would love to be involved. I had such a blast filming that movie. Jason’s great and the whole process was so fun. We got to shoot in New Zealand. I also heard they’re potentially shooting it in Australia, which would be amazing. It’s the only way I could get back into the damn country at this point!“

The Meg 2 does not have a release date at the moment.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Belle Avery produce with Jon and Erich Hoeber penning the recent rewrite of Dean Georgaris’ script. Catherine Ying, Li Ruigang, E. Bennett Walsh, Gerald Molen, and Randy Greenberg are exec producing.
Jon Turteltaub directed the first flick from a screenplay written by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber, and Erich Hoeber based on Steve Alten’s Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror.
It stars Statham with Li Bingbing, Rainn Wilson, Ruby Rose, and Winston Chao.
The first film tells the tale of a previously thought to be extinct massive creature that attacks a deep-sea submersible, leaving it disabled and trapping the crew at the bottom of the Pacific. With time running out, a visionary oceanographer recruits rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Statham) to save the crew and the sea itself from an unimaginable threat — a 75-foot-long prehistoric shark known as the Megalodon.
The film sports a 46% rating over on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: The Meg sets audiences up for a good old-fashioned B-movie creature feature but lacks the genre thrills — or the cheesy bite — to make it worth diving in.
