The most “James Wan” sequence of James Wan’s Aquaman involved an attack from The Trench, an ocean-dwelling race of evil creatures that allowed Wan to tap into his horror roots and bring some crazy monster action to the screen. THR is reporting tonight, in the wake of Aquaman‘s smash hit success, that WB is now giving the creatures their own spinoff!
The site reports that Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald have been hired to write what they describe as “a horror-tinged script.”
They add, “Details of the take are being kept submerged but it will be set in the kingdom of the Trench and will not feature the main cast of Aquaman.”
James Wan and Peter Safran will produce the spinoff, to be simply titled The Trench.
