Two Directors Up For “Justice League Dark”

Daniel Espinosa (“Life,” “Safe House”) and Gerard Johnstone (“Housebound”) have reportedly emerged as the two final candidates to take over the upcoming “Justice League Dark” film at Warner Bros. Pictures & DC Comics.

Beyond the Trailer broke the report, saying the studio has narrowed the search for a helmer down to these two names after the likes of both Damian Szifron (“Wild Tales”) and Andres Muschetti (“IT”) had been linked days after director Doug Liman chose to step away from the film back in May.

Michael Gilio’s script reportedly begins with a series of ancient tomes being stolen by a madman hell-bent on humanity‚Äôs end. Due to this, occult detective John Constantine seeks out a group of heroes that specialises in the mystic and arcane in order to save the world including Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna, Etrigan the Demon and potentially Madama Xanadu.

Scott Rudin is producing the film which has yet to schedule production dates.
