The actor has been in charge of the first treatment of the script. From it, director James Wan and writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick have finalized the script.
Aquaman 2, the sequel about Arthur Curry, is closer to becoming reality. The first installment about the Atlantean played by Jason Momoa was a box office success, grossing more than a billion dollars worldwide. It didn’t take long for Warner Bros. to give the green light to a sequel to the film directed by James Wan and with Amber Heard as Mera. Now, Momoa has revealed new details about this DC Cinematic Universe project. Among them, who has participated in the scriptwriting process and the shooting start date.
“After finishing the first one I went with my writing partner and we invented the second one and we went and presented the idea and the best I can give you is that I liked it so much that I participated in its writing,” says the interpreter on The Drew Barrymore Show. “Also, we did the first treatment of the script and then James and our original screenwriter David finished it and all our hearts go out to him.
The people named by Momoa in his statements are James Wan, director of the first and future sequel, and David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick, co-writer of Aquaman (2018). “Instead of getting a script and getting it done, your director and co-writers cheer you on 100%, so it’s exciting for me and I’m excited to go there,” explains the interpreter.
Momoa has also talked about when production on the sequel is expected to begin. “I’m leaving in July and we start shooting,” he anticipates.
At the moment, almost nothing is known about the story that Aquaman 2 will tell. The film will begin filming three years after the premiere of the character’s first solo installment. One of the new signings for the sequel is Pilou, who played Euron Greyjoy on the HBO series Game of Thrones. As you may recall, Momoa played Khal Drogo in the fiction that adapted the story written by George RR Martin.
Among the cast’s returns is Patrick Wilson, who played the Orm/Ocean Master installment in the first installment. Also those of Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta and Dolph Lundgren as Nereus.
