The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Warner Bros. has hired screenwriters Will Beall (Gangster Squad) and Kurt Johnstad (300) to pen two separate scripts for an upcoming Aquaman film. The film will be one of the nine upcoming installments after Batman v. Superman that will help shape DC's Cinematic Universe. The film is being developed on dual tracks, meaning that two scripts will be written, one by Beall and one by Johnstad, but only the best version will move forward.
A week ago, Warner Bros announced nine upcoming DC projects, the earliest of which comes August 5, 2016, a few months after their most ambitious DC adventure, Batman v. Superman. Based on this news, there is a good chance Aquaman may take this spot. However, accounting for unforeseen issues, 2017 may be the better bet as WB already has two DC releases set for June 23 and November 17.
No definitive word on the cast yet, but Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) has been confirmed/rumored to be making a cameo as Arthur Curry/Aquaman in Batman v. Superman. He'll likely reprise the role in this solo adventure.
