The success of Aquaman in 2018 made some horror fans wonder if we had lost genre master James Wan to the mainstream Hollywood machinery. No way! We don’t know when it will be released, and we don’t know what it will be called, but Wan’s next film will be a straight-up horror movie. It’s great news of fans who have followed the Australian filmmaker’s career since the first Saw movie in 2004.
Variety broke the news:
Wan is set to direct an untitled secret horror project for New Line Cinema, sources tell Variety. Plot details are currently being kept under wraps. Wan previously collaborated with New Line on The Conjuring universe, as well as The Curse of La Llorona and Lights Out. He’s also producing the upcoming Mortal Kombat. Wan will co-write the script with Ingrid Bisu, and he will produce through the Atomic Monster banner with Michael Clear.
