A new documentary is being produced about Mad Max director George Miller. No, the documentary is not going to focus on the four Mad Max films he helmed. Interestingly, the documentary is going to look at the Justice League of America film Miller almost made.
Back in 2007, Miller was slated to direct a live-action Justice League film. The film was not in “development hell” and, unlike other never made movies, this was not a feature in which the pre-production involved nothing more than constant rewriting of the screenplay and getting various actors attached. The film was completely cast and was loaded with all the famous D.C. Comics heroes such as Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and more.
The reasons behind the plug being pulled on the film are a combination of concerns over the huge budget and the fact that Christian Bale was not going to play the role of Batman according to Steve Murray. (Anyone playing Batman in Justice League would surely be deemed the “fake Batman”) Ultimately, the film was never made even though the day of shooting was very close.
Now, a documentary is going to tell the tale of what happened with the Justice League film.
