Warner Bros. Pictures has set “Aquaman” screenwriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick to pen a treatment for the sequel.
Will Beall and Johnson-McGoldrick co-wrote the first film from a story by Beall, Geoff Johns, and James Wan. Johnson-McGoldrick previously worked on AMC’s “The Walking Dead” and “The Conjuring 2”.
Wan is reportedly making his own deal to return for “Aquaman 2” as an executive producer alongside Peter Safran, but whether he’ll be back as the director is uncertain at this time.
The project is separate from the proposed spin-off film centering around the sea monsters in the film The Trench. Wan and Safran are producing that.
