Rainn Wilson may get attacked by a shark while he’s in New Zealand.

The America actor, known for his work in the US version of The Office, has landed in New Zealand for the filming of Meg, a sci-fi film based on Steve Alten's 1997 novel Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror. 

The film is about a giant prehistoric shark that attacks an international underwater observation program and also stars Jason Statham and Orange Is The New Black star, Ruby Rose.

Wilson posted a series of tweets expressing his thoughts on New Zealand, comparing our country to Canada.

Wilson also posted about Kiwi comedy star Rhys Darby’s TV show Short Poppies, calling it “hystericamazing”.

The star has a few other New Zealand connections.

He has starred alongside Kiwi actress Keisha Castle-Hughes in the TV show Roadies, and in 2011 it was reported on Reddit that the actor had died while visiting New Zealand, of course, this turned out to be a hoax.

Hopefully, Wilson avoids getting eaten by any real sharks during his stay in New Zealand this time around.
