James Wan (“Furious 7,” “The Conjuring”) is the reported frontrunner to direct the DC superhero film “Aquaman” at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Jason Momoa will star as the underwater breathing hero and will first appear in character in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ahead of multiple film appearances over the next few years.
Wan has no offer at this stage but he is said to be the studio’s choice and some early talks have taken place. Scheduling may be an issue however due to his commitments to the “Fast and Furious” franchise.
Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad are reportedly writing separate scripts for the project which will likely be later combined.
