More on THE TRENCH
We won’t be getting an AQUAMAN sequel until 2022. (I wonder why they’re waiting so long? Much better to take the proper time and get it right, though, instead of rushing it.) Does that mean we’ll have to wait equally as long for that spinoff film, THE TRENCH, announced recently? Nope!
Said producer Peter Safran in a recent interview with THR: “I suspect that that’s one [movie] that will come out significantly before Aquaman 2.” He sounds keen on the project, too. “We always, even from the early concept art days, loved the idea of a Trench movie. Then, when audiences embraced it in the movie itself the way they did, particularly that ant farm shot where the camera follows the [monsters] following Arthur and Mera down into the deep, we just knew that we had something very special there and we knew what that movie should be.”
Since Aquaman won’t be in the movie, hopefully they won’t try to shoehorn it into a PG-13 rating. Make it balls-out Horror, I say.
“We’ve definitely taken a page from our Conjuring playbook,” said Safran. “You’ve got the mothership, which is Aquaman, but there are so many great stories to tell within that universe of itself, that Atlantean universe.”
Yes, indeed. And there is room for Horror in that universe.
