Aquaman will officially cop a sequel, with Warner Bros. hiring one of the movie's original scriptwriters to write the second film.

The first official confirmation of a second instalment of Aquaman, which has smashed it in at the box office, has come via the hiring of David Leslie Johnson-McGoldrick.

Johnson-McGoldrick co-wrote the original script with Will Beall.

Director James Wan and producer Peter Safran are also making deals to return as producers, though it's not yet clear if Wan will direct again.

Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa as the title character plus Amber Heard, Willem Dafoe, Patrick Wilson and Nicole Kidman, has become of the highest-grossing films of all time, drawing $1.1 billion at the box office.

It follows the news of a spin-off to Aquaman, titled The Trench, designed as a lower-budget horror movie tying in with the original film.

None of the original cast are currently thought to be involved.
