Official Press Release:
PURRYBURRY PRODUCTIONS RELEASES TRIO OF PROMOTIONAL ARTWORKS FROM ARTIST BOSS LOGIC FOR THEIR PLANNED FEATURE LENGTH DOCUMENTARY CHRONICLING WARNER BROS FIRST, UNSUCCESFUL ATTEMPT TO MAKE A LIVE ACTION JUSTICE LEAGUE FILM.
In February 2007, Warner Brothers announced that a live action JUSTICE LEAGUE film was officially in the works – with legendary Australian Filmmaker George Miller in line to direct. Over the next Two years a series of extraordinary events led to the permanent shelving of the project just a few weeks prior to cameras rolling on the project.
Comic Fans and cinephiles alike have wondered for years what George Miller’s JUSTICE LEAGUE MORTAL would have looked like – no artwork, conceptual or otherwise has ever surfaced for the film and details on the abandoned project have always been hard to come by. Writer/Director Ryan Unicomb is collaborating with Producers Steven Caldwell, Aaron Cater & Maria Lewis to develop a feature length documentary with hopes of shining a light on the film that never was. While still in negotiations with Warner Bros. & Kennedy/Miller/Mitchell the planned production’s synopsis is as follows:
“GEORGE MILLER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE MORTAL is an exploration of the abandoned 2009 big screen adaptation of the DC Universe from legendary Australian Filmmaker George Miller. Examining the expansive source material of which the film was to be based off of while giving thought to the profound affect it’s release would have had on todays film & pop culture landscape.”
No release date has been specified.
The project is a co-production between Purryburry Productions & Caldwell Entertainment.
