In a recent interview, The Nun director, Corin Hardy, revealed that Aquaman director James Wan helped him direct some of the film.
In the interview, Hardy had nothing but praise for the Aquaman director and talked a bit about how he helped with some of the second unit work and helped with shooting some portions of the film:
Very excitingly, James Wan was my second unit director in a little bit of additional photography. It is funny, but we did some additional photography, and you’re always pushing for double what you really can afford, time- or budget-wise. I said, ‘I want to do all of this, but if we’re going to do it, we really need to run two units.’ James is a full-on, hands-on guy and he was like, ‘Anything I can do of service!’ It was like, ‘I really want to take you up on that.’ So, there were nights when he was shooting a section in the forest and I was shooting interiors.
From the sound of things, James Wan tries to do everything at once!
Before directing major block busters like Furious 7 and the upcoming Aquaman, Wan directed and/or produced a number of horror films. These included the Bloomhouse produced Insidious films and the first two installments of The Conjuring. The Nun, co-produced by Wan, is the latest spinoff from The Conjuring films and is set to be released in September. A full crossover of the two franchises is currently in development.
James Wan’s current project, Aquaman is set to debut in theaters on December 21st of this year. The film stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Patrick Wilson as Orm, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko and Ludi Lin as Murk. Here is a plot synopsis for the film:
From Warner Bros. Pictures and director James Wan comes an aciton-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.
