George Miller's Abandoned Justice League Movie Is Getting A Documentary

justice-league-mortalAustralian director Ryan Unicomb sent Comicbook.com an announcement and logo for an upcoming documentary about George Miller's abandoned Justice League movie. Warner Bros. announced a live action Justice League film way back in February 2007. The film was to be directed by Australian filmmaker George Miller.The film would have starredArmie Hammer as Batman, DJCotrona as Superman, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Common as Green Lantern, Santiago Cabrera asAquaman, and HughKeays-Byrne as MartianManhunter.

However, the project was shelved just a few days before cameras were supposed to start rolling. The film had the proposed title of Justice League Mortal, but no artwork, conceptual or otherwise has ever surfaced for the film.

Ryan Unicomb has teamed up with Producers Aaron Cater & Steven Caldwell and Writer/Author/Journalist/Film Commentator Maria Lewis to develop a feature length documentary to uncover the story behind Warner Brothers’ failure to launch the project.

The documentary will be titled Miller’s Justice League Mortal and will exist in the same vein as 2013’s Jodorowsky's Dune and this years The Death Of Superman Lives: What Happened? 

The documentary hopes to feature never before seen artwork, interviews with some of the proposed cast and crew, and a behind the curtain look into what really happened to bring the blockbuster to its knees. The documentary plans to present a non-biased recount of the development, pre-production and untimely cancellation of the project as well as the long lasting effect it had on the Australian Film Industry.

The project is currently in development and hopes to begin filming later this year.
