Warner Bros. has hired screewriter David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick to pen a draft of Aquaman 2, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

However, the Hollywood trade says that director James Wan has not yet signed on to helm the film - though he will reportedly serve as producer on the sequel. The title gained momentum in subsequent weeks and has hit $328 million in North America and $784 million internationally, led by almost $300 million in China.

"Aquaman" stars Jason Momoa, Amber Heard, Nicole Kidman, Patrick Wilson, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II at Comic Con San Diego, July 2018.

Prior to Aquaman, director James Wan built his reputation on a sequence of hit horror movies: Saw, Insidious and The Conjuring were all made under his direction, before he took on action movie Furious 7 and then DC's latest and biggest hit.

Johnson-McGoldrick writing credits include The Orphan, The Conjuring 2, and the upcoming The Conjuring 3.

Warners has writers Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald ready to work on a horror-flavoured film based on the creatures we met in the movie, revealed to be part of the kingdom of Atlantis but cut off from other survivors when it sank and somehow evolving into ravenous monsters. Wan and Safran will produce "The Trench", which is being developed as a lower-cost version of "Aquaman" without the main cast involved.
