While Marvel Studios (and Disney) fight with Universal Studios over the movie rights to the undersea hero Namor The Sub-Mariner, Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment are moving forward with their underwater guy, Aquaman.
Rumors have run rampant online for a month or two claiming actor Jason Momoa (Game of Thrones) is in the running to play Aquaman. However, nothing has been officially confirmed by the studio while Momoa consistently denies involvement to the film media. Now, WB has reportedly hired on two writers to start writing scripts for Aquaman.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Will Beall and Kurt Johnstad will both pen separate scripts for Aquaman. This shouldn't be a too big of a surprise since many Hollywood studios are using this method more and more, as of late. A studio will take the best parts of each script and either hire a new writer or take one of the current scribes to make an amalgamation into one script. Finally, after combining the best of each into one, a director will be hired who will most likely put his or her own spin on the script before production and filming begin.
Are you ready for Aquaman on the big screen? Well, you better be because it looks like Warner Bros. is ready to make it happen.
Let's just hope it performs better than James Cameron's fictional Aquaman from the HBO series Entourage.
