Scheduling makes Doug Liman abandon Justice League Dark movie… could IT director Andy Muschietti be stepping in?

May 24th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Oh, DC and Warners, what is it with you and directors?!

Only a couple of weeks after discussing in detail how the Justice League Dark movie would be a personal and small tale focused on John Constantine (here), director-to-be Doug Liman has had to leave the movie.

It is understood that Liman – who certainly seemed enthusiastic in the previous article – reluctantly stepped down as director because of a scheduling conflict with another movie, Choas Walking, which he’s currently directing.

We were excited to see what Lima would do in the darkest corner of the DC story but we’ve not lost all hope yet as THR writer Borys Kit is reporting that IT director Andy Muschietti is already being sought to pick up where Liman left off.

From what we’ve seen of IT, this could also be a fun director/direction for the darker side of the DC Universe.

He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
