Aquaman is a planned movie and is the seventh film in the DC Extended Universe about Arthur Curry's destiny as the King of Atlantis.
Sunrise Entertainment's producers Alan and Peter Riche are devoloping Aquaman to the big screen for Warner Bros. Pictures. Ben Grant, a first time scribe, was hired to write the screenplay. However the film fell through. In 2007 Santiago Cabrera was cast as Aquaman in its upcoming JLA film. However, later in the year the movie was shelved. In July 2009 it was reported that Aquaman is in development at Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way. Warner chairman and CEO Barry Meyer says that the Aquaman film is in development.
The project was announced on October 15, 2014 with Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Orin, Aquaman.
