Justin Chon has signed on to direct and executive produce the upcoming Jason Momoa Apple TV+ series “Chief of War,” reports Variety.
He’ll direct and executive produce the first two episodes of the series. It marks his latest directing venture with Apple, as Chon helmed and executive produced multiple episodes of the critically-acclaimed Apple series “Pachinko.” Variety notes that Chon most recently wrote, directed, and starred in the feature “Blue Bayou,” which also starred Alicia Vikander, Mark O’Brien, Linh Dan Pham, and Emory Cohen.
