Jason Momoa’s ‘Aquaman’ gets a new script writer, based on a draft by Geoff Johns

Warner Bros. hired multiple writers to pen Aquaman scripts, and late last year it was reported that David Leslie Johnson, who wrote director James Wan’s movie The Conjuring 2, would be writing the superhero script for him as well. Now, The Hollywood Reporter says that Warner Bros. is going in a different direction.

Will Beall, who wrote 2013’s Gangster Squad, is now the man who will be writing the Aquaman script. This time however, he is working off a detailed treatment from director James Wan and DC’s Geoff Johns, The Hollywood Reporter says.

It seems like as part of his new position as the head of DC Films, Geoff Johns will be very involved in the movie scripts. It was just recently announced that he co-wrote the Wonder Woman script as well.

What do you make of this Aquaman news? Let me know in the comments below.
