One of the biggest problems of doing a “Justice League” movie is not only the casting issues, but the expense of doing such a project.
A new report from IESB.Net however indicates that the problem may be solved quite easily – by making the film a CG motion capture project (ala “The Polar Express,” “Beowulf”).
The site says that Imageworks are apparently in the running to provide services on the film, competing with R&H and possibly WETA for the project.
This is good news – it allows the studio to proceed with filming on the project pre-strike as most of the work will be post-filming, it overcomes many budgeting issues as story options are practically unlimited, and rumors of George Miller’s involvement also make more sense.
It also allows the studio’s separate live action franchises to move forward without any confusion or detrimental impact – good news since its been confirmed that neither Christian Bale or Brandon Routh would’ve participated in a live-action ‘League’ flick.
Ryan Reynolds reluctantly admitted that he’s still interested in playing “The Flash,” the question is will he be a part of this, Shawn Levy’s live-action “Flash” film or both.
If true, production would begin early next year for release likely in 2010.
