Is George Miller finally realising his dream of being part of a team that brings The Justice League on to the big screen? The Mad Max: Fury Road director is reportedly on board Warner Bros' Justice League film directed by Zack Snyder.
On a casting call announcement for Justice League: Part One, also going by the working title "Caveman", acting auditions lists Miller as one of the producers alongside Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Doug Mitchell, Barrie Osborn and Dan Mill, reports Cinema Blend.
At the 88th Academy Awards, Superman star Henry Cavill revealed he has seen the Justice League script and doesn't know if Miller will be serving as a producer on the film. The actor did, however, talk about being a part of the iconic superhero team.
"We're talking about Justice League here," Cavill told MTV News. "The DC Cinematic Universe is finally getting its chance to really grow in this one. I think all of the characters are fantastic. I'm looking forward to being a part of that whole gig."
Eight years ago, Miller was working with Warner Bros to bring the Justice League to the big screen for the first time in Justice League: Mortal. Unfortunate timing and financial issues eventually led to the project's collapse. Now it looks like he will finally get to contribute to the Justice League's cinematic debut in 2017, even if it is as a producer.
Justice League Part One will officially begin production on 11 April. The film is slated to release on 17 November 2017.
