James Wan is setting the record straight about his involvement with the upcoming Constantin Film's reboot of Resident Evil.

According to the Aquaman director, word of his production company Atomic Monster being involved with the reboot was incorrect, as well as Wan's involvement as a producer for the reboot.

In an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Wan corrects the previous reports:

"I'm not doing that anymore. That has been dropped.

They announce that I'm attached to a lot of stuff and a lot of them are not necessarily real. It's kind of annoying when things come and go, or things never came in the first place. I hate it when my projects get announced. It makes it seem like I'm attached to a lot of things when in fact I'm not necessarily doing so many things. A lot of my stuff just get announced and I don't want them to be announced but people love to announce them."

Just last week, there was word that the Resident Evil reboot had found a director in 47 Meters Down helmer Johannes Roberts, but at this time there are still no official updates.

Wan's Aquaman is currently enjoying the top position at the international box office, and opens in the States on December 21st 2018.
