James Wan says he is going back to 'indie roots' with next film

James Wan / All Lights Film MagazineFilmmaker James Wan has shared few details of his next directorial venture, saying that he is planning to return to his 'indie roots'.

In an Instagram post, the 42-year-old director said the new project is a 'hard-R thriller' and based on an 'original horror idea'.

"There's been a bit of speculation as to what my next project is...All I'll say is, I'm super excited to go back to my indie roots with this hard-R thriller. An original horror idea (not a reboot/remake or anything based on existing IP) with old school, practical effects and no giant, blue screen sets," Wan wrote.

The filmmaker, who made a name for himself with 'The Conjuring' and 'Saw' franchises, took a turn towards mainstream blockbusters with films like 'Fast and Furious 7' and 'Aquaman' in the last couple of years.

He is currently scouting for locations for his yet-to-be-titled project.
