ZACK SNYDER's JUSTICE LEAGUE: Warner Bros. Said No To Reshoots With Original Cast Members
Zack Snyder is being given the opportunity to complete his version of Justice League, but when the director asked the studio about reshoots with the original cast, they quickly shot the idea down...
After two-and-a-half years of demands for Warner Bros. to #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, the studio has finally given in, and Zack Snyder's Justice League will debut on HBO Max sometime next year.
While between $20 million - $30 million is being spent on finishing his version of the movie in post-production, it sounds like Warner Bros. may have drawn the line at the filmmaker's ambitious plans to bring cast members back for reshoots, which would have presumably added even more scenes.
"There’s not going to be any reshoots of any kind with any actors," The Wrap's Umberto Gonzalez explains. "It’s just additional dialogue. Here’s something that hasn’t been reported yet: [Snyder] did want to shoot and he wanted to do additional photography but HBO Max said no, that’s not happening."
"We’ll give you money for post-production, for special effects, for scoring, and even ADR but no reshoots of any kind on this movie."
Honestly, that makes sense as Warner Bros. has already spent a huge amount on the film - but it's hard not to wonder whether this means we won't end up getting the Martian Manhunter scene Snyder has shared in storyboard form.
Still, it's possible that could change, and equally as likely that the scene could be put together with VFX. As cool as it would have been for Snyder to be able to bring back some cast members, that would have sent costs through the roof, and you can't blame the studio for trying to keep them under control.
What do you guys think? Are you still excited for Zack Sndyer's Justice League?
