New ‘Aquaman’ movie in the works with two competing scripts


So it was a running gag on “Entourage” a few years back … but Warners is working on an ‘Aquaman’ movie and there are two, competing scripts in the works.

From The Wrap:

“Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad are writing separate takes on the water-loving superhero

A standalone “Aquaman” movie is swimming its way towards the big screen, as Warner Bros. has hired Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad to write separate screenplays in an effort to speed up the development process, an individual familiar with the studio’s plan has told TheWrap.

Jason Momoa will play Aquaman in Zack Snyder‘s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and its follow-up, “Justice League,” though Warners has yet to confirm Momoa’s role.

Aquaman is expected to play a minor role in “Batman v Superman” before becoming a more central character in “Justice League.”

Johnstad has worked with Snyder before on “300,” while Beall has worked with Warner Bros. before on “Gangster Squad.”
