Warner Bros. and DC are starting to rev up their solo DC properties with the studio tapping “300: Rise of an Empire” scribe Kurt Johnstad to write one script and “Gangster Squad” writer Will Beall to pen another script to their “Aquaman” pic.
An insider close to the project explained that the two wouldn’t be co-writing the project, but that they would be writing separate scripts with the studio hoping for the best version to come out of this strategy.
The film is currently not dated, which allows flexibility in deciding when to slot the film.
Beall is repped by CAA and Management 360, while Johnstad is repped by WME and Untitled Entertainment.
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news. Warner Bros. had no comment.
