With James Wan’s Aquaman last week in talks to bring in Nicole Kidman and Yahya Dbul-Mateen II, now comes word that Temuera Morrison is also in negotiations for the film. As per The Hollywood Reporter, the New Zealander is in talks to play the human father of Jason Momoa’s titular hero.
The impressive Morrison first caught our eye in the mesmerising Once Were Warriors back in 1994, although many will likely be more familiar with him for playing Jango Fett in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. He also more recently voiced the lead character’s father, Chief Tui, in the animated Moana.
If Morrison does indeed join the film, he’ll join a cast that includes Momoa’s King of Atlantis, Amber Heard as Aquaman’s other half, Mera, Willem Dafoe as Atlantean advisor, Vulko, and Patrick Wilson as Orm/Ocean Master, the jealous half-brother of Aquaman. As of last week, Kidman was in talks to play Atlanna, the Atlantean mother of Momoa’s Marine Marvel, while Abdul-Mateen II was up for the role of the villainous Black Manta.
Aquaman is due to start shooting in April ahead of an October 2018 release.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
