Jason Momoa discussed what it was like to write the treatment for Aquaman 2 in a recent interview with Drew Barrymore.
Aquaman was a bonafide hit for Warner Bros., grossing over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. The success of Aquaman proved that the goofy image of Aquaman held for decades was now washed away. Much of Aquaman‘s success could be attributed to star Jason Momoa, who brought a level of bravado and charisma to the otherwise laughed at character. Now, with a sequel in tow, it has been revealed that Momoa also lent his creative writing skills to the project in addition to his acting chops.
In a recent interview with Drew Barrymore to discuss his water company Mananalu Pure Water, Jason Momoa discussed what it was like to actually write up the story treatment for Aquaman 2, which he handed over to director James Wan and writer David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick.
“After we ended the first one I went in with my writing partner and we dreamed up the second one and we went in and pitched the idea and the best thing I can give you is that I love it so much that I participated in the writing of it. And so, we did the first treatment and then James and our original writer David finished it off and all of our hearts are in it. Instead of just like getting a script and doing that like you are 100% being encouraged by your director and co-writers so that’s exciting for me and I’m excited to go over there. I leave in July and we start filming.”
