There has been a lot of movement at the Aquaman station over the past couple of months. Not only has Dolph Lundgren and Nicole Kidman joined an already all-star cast, but production has now got underway. Posting from his official Instagram account creeptypuppet, Australian director James Wan indicated that he will be M.I.A. with his cast. Including Jason Momoa, Willem Dafoe, Amber Heard and co. until at least October. Giving him approximately six months to make the movie.
"Months of intensive prep have led to this," the filmmaker posted. "Day one of photography. See you all around Halloween. Let's dive! #Ahab."
While fans will be disappointed not to see any sneak peak of Momoa, Heard or another superhero/villain of the piece, Wan's understated social media presence is a contrast to Zack Snyder. Who is often criticized for delivering more good content online that on the big screen.
Wan Keeping Some Trade Secrets Up His Sleeve
The underwater setting showcased by Wan illustrates that he is keen to keep as many cards close to the chest as possible. Warner Brothers has not commented on the possibility of the cast and crew visiting Sicily, as the feature had to push back the film from July 27 to three months later.
Gold Coast in Wan's native Australia, Tunisia and Newfoundland have been locations reported to be part of production, but other sets have been kept under lock and key. The director has a talented team behind the scenes with his photography, including the likes of Don Burgess, Kirk M. Morri and Bill Brzeski who have experience working alongside the filmmaker with The Conjuring and Furious 7.
