New Line is building an impressive cast for their upcoming thriller Meg. Action icon Jason Statham is set to star alongside Jessica McNamee, Bingbing Fan and the most recent casting addition, Ruby Rose, who came aboard earlier this month. Today we have word that The Office alum Rainn Wilson is coming aboard in a very important role.

The story will center on Jason Statham's character, a former Naval captain and expert diver. He is recruited to undertake a deep-sea mission rescue off the coast of China, where he must save a couple of scientists who find themselves under attack from a threat more terrifying than any monster. Deadline reports that Rainn Wilson is playing Jack Morris, the tech billionaire who funds an underwater observation program that unknowingly unleashes the giant shark known as the Carcharodon megalodon, which is said to be a 70-foot, 40-ton prehistoric cousin of the great white shark. »
