Slashfilm had the opportunity to interview Will Beall, who’s the co-writer of Aquaman. In the interview, Beall spoke a bit about the upcoming film, sharing some interesting tidbits about the setting of the film regarding the action, working on the script with Geoff Johns and director James Wan, as well on working on making the best the film.
ON THE ACTION OF THE FILM:
“I can tell you that not all of the action takes place underwater,” Beall said. “Some of the most fun action in the movie actually takes place on dry land.”
THE STATUS OF THE SCRIPT:
Even with a TV show in production at CBS, Beale is not finished with his Aquaman screenplay. “Nope, I am still working on it with James [Wan] and Geoff [Johns],” Beall said.
HAVE THERE BEEN ANY CHANGES MADE DUE TO STUFF GOING ON IN JUSTICE LEAGUE OR VICE VERSA:
“No, no, they know what’s happening,” Beall said. “Everybody knows what’s happening so it’s not that. It’s working out what’s going to make the best movie.”
It looks as though the filmmakers continue to have a great set of communication between them. It also looks as though he has confirmed that Geoff Johns was also working with them on the film. Could this be in the realm of writing? We knows that Geoff Johns has added his writing skills to Wonder Woman, Justice League and The Batman, so it’s not too far of a stretch. He has won awards for writing with DC Comics and knows how to delegate multiple stories and keep the quality of story telling going. Now as the head of the DC Extended Universe, Geoff Johns will be involved with each film with varying involvement.
