The deal has been reached for Furious 7 Director James Wan to helm Aquaman for Warner Bros., which will also be starring Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones).
In a statement made by Warner Bros. Pictures’ Greg Silverman, he states that,
This will be the first time director James Wan has made any film within the superhero genre and before Furious 7 Wan was known for directing and producing horror films including The Conjuring, Insidious, and the immensely successful Saw films.
This announcement should come as no surprise seeing as Furious 7 has been very successful both critically and financially.
