Mad Max Meets Justice League
Ha! Got you! No, not Mel Gibson. Well, maybe not Mel GIbson.
We’ve all been hearing about Warner Bros.’s forthcoming Justice League of America movie starring Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Lantern and Aquaman. More or less’ who knows until the movie gets made. It’s got a script by Kieran and Michele Mulroney. Well now, according to Variety, it’s even got a director.
George Miller, the director of the three Mad Max movies as well as The Witches of Eastwick and Happy Feet (among others) is going to pilot the League to box office heights.
No word on the availability of the current Superman and Batman, Brandon Routh and Christian Bale, respectively. Variety thinks not, but if Warner’s is carrying a hefty wallet, we might just get Ocean 11 with capes. Perhaps WB will sign their new Wonder Woman (if that movie actually gets made) to the JLA deal as a casting condition.
I’ll bet Mel’s got George on speed dial.
Variety suggests the movie will be released in 2009; IMDB thinks 2010.
