Today comes the news that Warner Bros. has reeled in two writers to tackle two separate screenplays for an “Aquaman” film, this according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter.

Warner Bros. has hired Will Beall who wrote the studio’s 2013 film “The Gangster Squad”—and Kurt Johnstad who has also previously worked for the studio with this year’s “300: Rise of an Empire.”

Both writers have been tasked with writing two different takes on the film with the hopes of bringing the best possible version of the film to the big screen.

The news is not much of a surprise as Warner Bros. recently announced nine dates for untitled DC movies, one of which coming August, 5 2016—so they need to get the ball rolling. President of Domestic Distribution Dan Fellman told EW in a interview that some of those films would be announced later this month.

Aquaman is set to make his cinematic debut in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” with Jason Momoa taking on the role—however, Warner Bros. has yet to officially announce it—but if you count Zack Snyder’s call into a Detroit radio station to defend the character as an official announcement, that works.

The release date for “Aquaman” has not been unveiled, but it is sure to be one of those nine Warner Bros. dated.
