Documentary About George Miller's Aborted JUSTICE LEAGUE: MORTAL In The Works

With Mad Max: Fury Road currently receiving rave reviews from critics and fans, many have looked back on director George Miller's abandoned Justice League: Mortal movie and wondered what actually went wrong. It seems we may be about to find out - hit the jump for more!


Many of you will know that before he returned to the iconic Mad Max franchise with this year's immensely popular Fury Road, Aussie director George Miller was working on an even bigger project for Warner Bros. Miller's now-cancelled Justice League: Mortal once looked set to "unite the seven" as early as 2009, but production location issues and the writer's strike derailed the project. By 2013, Miller's superhero flick was but a mere memory, with WB opting instead to re-build the DCCU, beginning with Zack Snyder's Man Of Steel.

However, there was a time that this project genuinely looked like it was going ahead, with a cast attached. Notable members of Miller's ensemble include The Lone Ranger's Armie Hammer as Batman and 'Immortan Joe' himself (Hugh Keays-Byrne) as the Martian Manhunter. So what really went wrong? A new documentary looking into the cancelled feature has been proposed by director Ryan Unicomb, who sat down with Inside Film to discuss his vision:


“I have always been fascinated with project, which would be in the same vein as 2013’s Jodorowsky’s Dune and this year’s The Death of Superman Lives: What Happened?, about a Superman movie that Tim Burton was to direct in the 1990s.”



With producers, writers and private investors already on board, Unicomb suggested he may also turn to a crowd-funding campaign to help fund the project. Given the quality of similar recent features like Jodorowsky's Dune, this may be one to keep an eye on. Does a documentary like this interest you? And how do you think Miller's Justice League: Mortal would have panned out? Be sure to leave your thoughts below!
