The Justice League Dark movie that Warner Bros. Pictures has been planning has thus far lost both Guillermo del Toro and Doug Liman as potential directors. The pair had both been involved in developing the movie, with Liman the last to depart the project three months ago.
Since then, Warner Bros has been on the hunt for a new director and it seems it may have found two new candidates. A new report suggests that – after considering the likes of Andres Muschetti and Damian Szifron (who made It and Wild Tales respectively) – that the shortlist is now down to Daniel Espinosa and Gerard Johnstone. The former is best known for Life and Safe House, the latter for Housebound.
The screenplay for the film – at least the current draft – has been penned by Michael Gilio, and it’s far too early yet to hear about casting or a release date.
