James Wan, master of modern-day horror, will direct Aquaman.
Wan is known for his directorial work on Saw, The Conjuring, Insidious, and Furious Seven.
The director has already agreed to work on New Line Cinema’s The Conjuring 2 this fall, meaning Aquaman may not begin filming until next Spring. Additionally, Wan will be overseeing the script, which will be written by Kurt Johnstad (300).
Considering the type of movies 300 and all the Wan projects are like, it looks like Aquaman will be a much different DC movie. Add Jason Momoa to the mix, and we are in for a surprise.
