The Justice League Dark movie, that Warner Bros is 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.
It seems it may have found one, too. 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 not clear as of yet just when to expect the film.
