Justice League goes Big Budget and Down Under

If you thought that Warner Bros. was keeping ‘mum’ on the new Justice League movie, you’d be right. But thankfully, there have been a few enterprising scoopers sending information the way of ‘Obsessed with Film’ that have illuminated what might be happening.
According to a recent scoop acquired by OWF by way of an Australian film industry insider, the following information has made its way on to the tubes;

The studio has greenlit the project as their summer 2009 tentpole. Filming for the principals will take place in Sydney from February to June 2008 – George Miller was unsurprisingly listed as director in the info we got.

Auditions are starting up down under with Nikki Barrett (Baz Luhrmann’s Australia, The Proposition) hired to handle the casting in Australia. Ronna Kress (Beowulf, The Mummy 3) will oversee the entire casting process.

Oscar-winner Barrie M. Osborne (The Lord of the Rings, The Matrix) will take on producing duties; he’ll be joined by Miller’s partner Doug Mitchell.

So it looks as if WB are putting some attention the way of the JLA, and hopefully making it happen before the strike, though, in reality, who knows…
