Last August we found out that Edge of Tomorrow director had stepped away from the Gambit movie to take on the Justice League Dark movie Dark Universe. Well, as time passes, and none of these movies seem to be getting made, he’s now stepped away from this one too apparently.
Liman seems to have left the the Justice League Dark film because of scheduling issues, as Lionsgate has greenlit his film Chaos Walking. And you know what they always say “Make the movie that someone’s actually paying you for.”
Liman, of course, was not the first director on this film, as Guillermo del Toro was attached before he got pulled away to work on other projects as well. No word yet on who will take over Justice League Dark from Liman, as the studio isn’t commenting on the departure. We’ll keep following this once a replacement is announced.
