James Wan, the master of horror films, says his next movie will likely be a return to the horror genre.
After directing the horror film ‘Malignant‘ in 2021, Wan shifted to working on the DC sequel ‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,’ set to be released on December 22, 2023. Fans are eager for a possible sequel to ‘Malignant,’ hoping for more from Wan in the horror genre.
In an interview with Collider, Wan hints at a possible return to the horror genre for his next film.
Wan said, “You know, I have a tendency to want to go back and forth. So, whenever I make a smaller film, I want to go and make a big film. Whenever I’m doing a big one, I’m like, “Oh, I wanna go and do a smaller film,” and when I do my smaller films, it tends to be a horror film. So, you know, I feel like the itch for horror is potentially calling, but we’ll see.”
‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ Plot:
Having failed to defeat Aquaman the first time, Black Manta, still driven by the need to avenge his father’s death, will stop at nothing to take Aquaman down once and for all. This time Black Manta is more formidable than ever before, wielding the power of the mythic Black Trident, which unleashes an ancient and malevolent force. To defeat him, Aquaman will turn to his imprisoned brother Orm, the former King of Atlantis, to forge an unlikely alliance. Together, they must set aside their differences in order to protect their kingdom and save Aquaman’s family, and the world, from irreversible destruction.
All returning to the roles they originated, Jason Momoa plays Arthur Curry/Aquaman, now balancing his duties as both the King of Atlantis and a new father; Patrick Wilson is Orm, Aquaman’s half-brother and his nemesis, who must now step into a new role as his brother’s reluctant ally; Amber Heard is Mera, Atlantis’ Queen and mother of the heir to the throne; Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, committed more than ever to avenge his father’s death by destroying Aquaman, his family, and Atlantis; and Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, a fierce leader and mother with the heart of a warrior. Also reprising their roles are Dolph Lundgren as King Nereus and Randall Park as Dr. Stephen Shin.
‘Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom’ is produced by Atomic Monster and Peter Safran, and will debut internationally on December 20, 2023, and in North America on the same date. Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute it worldwide.
