George Miller Shares His Thoughts On Cancelled <i>Justice League</i> Film!

Director George Miller, who was once attached to helm a Justice League adaptation that was supposed to be motion-capture, starring Common and Armie Hammer, briefly talks about what went wrong and more...



While talking to Coming Soon about his upcoming animated film Happy Feet Two, director George Miller was asked about cancelled motion-capture Justice League project, that almost got made back in 2007. More below...

""You know, John Lennon said, 'Life is what happens when you're making other plans'", Miller said. "Films keep on coming out of my head and I never know what film I'm going to make next. Common and I were going to work on a 'Justice League' movie together. He was cast as Green Lantern and it was almost greenlit when it fell away. I fell in love with the guy and I called him up and said, 'You can't play the Green Lantern, but how about playing a penguin?' That was a whole bunch of complex events. It was the middle of a writers strike. There was Australian rebate legislation that was required to get the film going. It was just a whole complex series of events. It was no one particular's fault that it didn't happen."


Along Common as Green Lantern, D.J. Cotrona was supposed to play Superman, Megan Gale was cast as Wonder Woman, Armie Hammer as Batman and Adam Brody as the Flash. Budget was around $220 million before everything was cancelled. So, would you like to see a motion-capture Justice League film in the future?
