Namor Movie Gets Terminator 3 Director

Jonathan Mostow will helm Universal's big pic adaptation of Marvel's first mutant super-hero.

Sub-Mariner will be directed by Jonathan Mostow (Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, U-571), according to Variety.

Universal Pictures wants Mostow to rewrite the David Self script they have in hand as well. According to Variety Mostow has cleared his schedule to make Sub-Mariner his next film.

Here's how the trade describes Sub-Mariner: "The comic, created by cartoonist Bill Everett in April 1939, centers on a young man who discovers he's actually a descendant from the long-lost kingdom of Atlantis. He turns out to be the key man in a brewing war between the underwater world and our own."

Kevin Misher will produce from his Misher Films company along with Marvel Studios.
