Almost there, boys. The nails are slowly but surely being pound into the coffin of the ill-conceived “Justice League of America” movie. (Or “Justice League: Mortals”, or whatever the hell they’re calling it nowadays.) The latest news out of Australia is that the Down Under government will not be giving Warner Bros. the tax break they’re asking for, and indeed, one of the reasons why they chose Australia to film in the first place, which may mean the movie possibly moving to Canada — or, if the Gods are smiling, getting trashed and starting from scratch. One can only hope, right?
Once again, the troubled Justice League of America movie has hit a bump in the road. Discussing the film with the Sydney Morning Herald, director George Miller revealed his frustration with the Australian government over a denied tax break that will likely mean the movie will change locations and in any instance, will create more setbacks.
“If that’s going to be the final decision, they’re throwing away hundreds of millions of dollars of investment that the rest of the world is competing for and, much more significantly, highly skilled creative jobs,” fumed Miller.
\film cites a report at Action-Figure.com in which it is purported that studio heads may want to movie the cursed production to Canada and that Miller and the cast may all be replaced.
Dammit, kill this thing already. It was DOA from the very beginning.
