Noam Murro (“300: Rise of an Empire”) has reportedly emerged as a directorial candidate for the upcoming “Aquaman” movie at Warner Bros. Pictures.
Latino Review broke the news and also says that “The Lord of the Rings” and “Star Trek” star Karl Urban is being sought for a supporting role in the film which may be the villain (Ocean Master maybe?).
Jason Momoa will play the title character in the film. Momoa will make an appearance as the character in next year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ahead of this solo film due for release in July 2018. Momoa apparently has a four-picture deal to play Aquaman, the other two films of the deal being the two-part “Justice League” movie
“Mud” helmer Jeff Nichols was linked to the project last month and is said to still be in the running to direct alongside Murro. Urban’s involvement will depend upon his “Star Trek 3” commitments.
