Aquaman co-writer/director/producer James Wan has signed on to produce a new horror/thriller as part of Universal Pictures' legacy monsters franchise, according to Variety. The subject matter of the film is not reported, but Wan is reportedly working with screenwriter (and comics writer) Robbie Thompson on the project. The Hollywood trade reports that a director has not been chosen yet.
Univeral's monsters franchise includes their versions of Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, the Mummy, the Wolf Man, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and the Invisible Man - the latter of which was revamped for the recent hit film which debuted last week.
Wan produces films and TV shows through his Atomic Monster banner, and has several comic adaptations lined up there including Dylan Dog and Gideon Falls.
As a director, Wan recently finished Malignant for an August 2020 release through Warner Bros., is penciled in to direct Netflix's The Magic Order pilot, and is slated to return for December 16, 2022's Aquaman sequel.
