It’s official. Aquaman has a director. According to an article from Hollywood Reporter, the film starring Jason Momoa as the titular sea-faring leader of Atlantis will be directed by one of the most in-demand directors in the world right now.
The man, the myth, the legend: James Wan.
It should be absolutely no surprise. Furious 7 is one of the top grossing films ever, managing to pull in $1.5 billion worldwide. With numbers like that — yeah, he deserves the job.
Beyond that, he’ll also oversee the development of the script, currently being penned by Kurt Johnston, who wrote 300.
Also, for all you Robotech fans, Wan will be directing that as well.
What a wonderful, wonderful time to be a nerd.
