With Steve Alten’s fan favourite Meg currently (and finally!) being adapted for the big screen, now comes word that another of Alten’s works has been picked up for the movie treatment.

As per Bloody-Disgusting, Alten’s 2005 tale The Loch is now being developed as a full feature film. The writer himself revealed the news, telling the outlet, “Belle Avery, the leader 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.”

The synopsis for this Loch Ness-set novel reads:

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 where the legend of Loch Ness shows its true face.

In the meantime, the Jason Statham-headlined Meg adaptation – which centres on a giant Megalodon shark causing all sorts of chaos and carnage – is currently in producation ahead of an August 10th, 2018 release.

Expect to hear a whole lot more on The Loch as we get it.
