JLA Shelved


Media web site Digital Spy, Variety and others sources are reporting the highly-anticipated Justice League of America movie has been shelved indefinitely.

Warner Bros has allowed the cast’s contracts to expire because of difficulties over the screenplay and taxation issues, according to Variety. Budget was also an issue, especially if the production doesn’t ultimately qualify for tax incentives in Australia, where the film was going to be shot.

E! Online reports producers have also agreed the script by Kieran Mulroney and Michele Mulroney needed some tinkering – something that can’t be done until the Writers Guild strike is over.

Warner Bros had already begun to distance the project from other DC-related franchises, as we reported earlier this month.

Directed by George Miller, the film based on DC Comics superhero super team was rumoured to star former OC actor Adam Brody as The Flash, alongside Armie Hammer Jr (as Batman), rapper Common (Green Lantern), Megan Gale (Wonder Woman) and Scott Porter (Superman). Wolf Creek actress Theresa Palmer was also lined up to play Batman’s love interest Talia al Ghul.

Cast members were reportedly already on location on Tuesday when they were informed that the movie had been put on hold. But they were assured that the studio had every intention of making it in the future, with the existing cast as its stars.
