“Gangster Squad” scribe Will Beal has come onboard to pen the script for the James Wan-directed “Aquaman” film at Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment.
The story follows Aquaman, the King of the Seven Seas and the reluctant ruler of Atlantis who is caught between a surface world constantly ravaging the sea and Atlanteans looking to lash out in revolt.
Beal’s script will be based on a treatment by Geoff Johns and Wan. Jason Momoa will play the titular superhero while Amber Heard and Willem Dafoe are also on board to star. The film opens July 27th 2018.
