Variety is reporting that writer Will Beall has been tapped to write a script for WB’s upcoming superhero film ‘Justice League’. According to the news outlet the studio is still awaiting a script from Beall and isn’t talking when it comes to details surrounding the comic adaption. The well known writer is currently busy with the anticipated Lethal Weapon reboot, as well as a remake of Logan’s Run that will star in demand actor Ryan Gosling under the direction of Nicolas Winding Refn, but hopes that he will have a storyline firmed up soon is exciting news.
In regards to its top secret status, Warner Brothers may be keeping things under wraps after the project failed to come to fruition the first time around years ago during the writers strike. In their first attempt at the project director George Miller was hired on with a cast comprised of The O.C.’s Adam Brody as The Flash, actress Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, with Armie Hammer set to play Batman. Ultimately the whole idea was scrapped and left for dead after a tax break dilemma. It look’s like things are back on now with The Avengers being the perfect example of what a movie like this could do for Warner Brothers. What do you think? Do you want to see the Justice League come to the big screen?
