During an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Aquaman director James Wan confirmed that he is no longer producing a Resident Evil reboot.
Over a year ago, it was reported that James Wan was attached to produce a reboot of the Resident Evil films. However, Wan has now revealed that he and his Atomic Monster Productions company is no longer involved the Resident Evil reboot:
“I’m not doing that anymore. That has been dropped.”
The Aquaman director also expressed some annoyance over the fact that projects he’s attached to are sometimes announced prematurely:
They announce that I’m attached to a lot of stuff and a lot of them are not necessarily real. It’s kind of annoying when things come and go, or things never came in the first place. I hate it when my projects get announced. It makes it seem like I’m attached to a lot of things when in fact I’m not necessarily doing so many things. A lot of my stuff just get announced and I don’t want them to be announced but people love to announce them.
