Furious 7 director James Wan will direct Aquaman and Robotech


The Fast and the Furious franchise may have given birth to the next big action director. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Furious 7 director James Wan has just inked a deal with Warner Bros. to helm the Aquaman film starring Jason Momoa. Wan is also set to direct Sony’s upcoming Robotech adaptation, which the company hopes will be the start of a whole new franchise.

Aquaman, which has Momoa playing what might be a more brutal take on DC comic’s ruler of Atlantis, is currently slated to hit theaters in 2018, along with The Flash. Warner Bros. is moving at a swift clip with its comic book adaptation to keep up with Marvel’s own schedule, with Suicide Squad already filming for release next year. Aquaman will make his film debut next year in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. As for Robotech, Sony bought the rights for the classic anime series earlier this spring, and it plans on launching an “impressive universe” of wide storytelling possibilities the likes of which can compete with Transformers.

Wan, for his part, is considered a pretty hot commodity right now, considering Furious 7 has already brought in more than $350 million at the domestic box office. It’s safe to say he’ll have a lot on his plate going forward.
