Fast & Furious 7's James Wan Wanted For Aquaman
THR reports that hot off the heels of the of Fast & Furious 7's $500 million debut, Warner Bros. is in preliminary talks with Wan.
It's said there is no offer on the table, but the hope is in choosing Wan that the director would bring both critical and financial success to Aquaman.
It's unknown if Wan would be able to find time to direct Aquaman as Wan may potentially direct the Fast & Furious 7 sequel and has The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist in the pipeline as well.
WB wants someone like James Wan to bring a more serious approach to Aquaman, whom has been the butt of jokes amongst fans for decades. We see that WB is pretty serious about the character by choosing Momoa as well.
Jason Momoa will first appear in Batman Vs . Superman before Aquaman and will be a part of the two Justice League movies.
Aquaman is due in 2018 with two separate scripts being written by Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad, respectively.
