The last we heard of the Justice League movie was that Warner Bros had suspended production, for a number of reasons. This was last month, however now the writers strike is over, and things may be moving forward for the movie, or should I say…north.
Justice League was due to be shot at Fox Studios this year until Warner Bros suspended production last month, citing uncertainty over the new incentives. Based on a comic book, it is due to star the Australians Megan Gale, Teresa Palmer and Hugh Keays-Byrne among eight lead roles and employ a huge crew that includes visual effects specialists.
“One of the reasons for doing Justice League in this country is the opportunity to bring back all the people we lost on Happy Feet who went overseas,” Miller said. “We spent four years developing this talent and the cream of them left because they didn’t have another film to go on to …
“The idea is to say come back, start off on Justice League then move onto Happy Feet 2.”
Miller described the movie’s status as “precarious” and said Warner Bros was pushing for it to be shot overseas, with Canada the most likely option.
The movie already has its cast, it just needs to start production. It seems a bit of a strange reason for a movie to get rebooted, simply so the crew can see each other again. I know a lot of people don’t want this movie to happen and were happy when things got closed down last month, but I will save judgement until things start rolling, or we get something from the movie itself.
