Wachowskis in the Running to Direct Justice League Movie

According to Moviehole, "Warner Bros are apparently jazzed with “Cloud Atlas”, and love that it’s as much a spectacle as it is a showcase for the immense ensemble involved, so it makes sense the W’s are under consideration."

Besides bringing the blockbuster "Matrix" trilogy to the big screen, the Wachowkis co-wrote and produced the graphic novel adaptation V For Vendetta, and directed, wrote and produced Speed Racer. Warner Bros. will release their Cloud Atlas in theaters on October 26.

I don't think they really had a great movie outside the first Matrix, but as long as they don't write The Justice League movie and let someone else do that, it might be fine.

Whoa! Maybe Cloud Atlas is really good (the book is fantastic) and V for Vendetta was decent for an Alan Moore adaption.

Re: Wachowskis in the Running to Direct Justice League Movie

I don't want to see a super-stylized Justice League movie. I think the best way to deal with something as fanciful as superheroes is to keep it naturalistic and grounded in style, the better to promote suspension of disbelief.

Also, admittedly I haven't seen anything from the Wachowskis besides the Matrix trilogy, but the latter two movies of that series showed a tendency on their part to go overboard with the action scenes, and that's a temptation it would be easy to succumb to in a superhero team movie. What you want is a director who, like Whedon, can handle action effectively but never loses sight of the characters at the core of the story.

Re: Wachowskis in the Running to Direct Justice League Movie

Once upon a time, this would have excited me, but that was before I saw the mess that the Matrix sequels were, particularly Revolutions. Sure, they can handle an action sequence but they seem to have lost the plot (literally) in terms of how to write.

Christopher, you should check out their first movie, Bound, with Gina Gershon & Jennifer Tilly. It's an excellent noir-ish thriller, no sci-fi elements. Great plot and intrigue (and Gina, nomnomnom).

I'd really like to see Brad Bird make this movie (I've shamelessly stolen this idea from Jackson Archer).

Re: Wachowskis in the Running to Direct Justice League Movie

While the Matrix sequels were rather dreadful, I liked pretty much all their other movies. Speed Racer especially is very underrated imho. They definitely have an eye for spectacular visuals. If they have a good screenplay to work with, I'm sure they could make a very cool JLA movie.

They better start offering Nolan stupid money to get in on this. I think he's said he wouldn't be involved but still like I said, throw a ridiculous amount at him and get his ass involved somehow someway. This movie will probably make or break DC's superhero's movie franchise for the foreseeable future.

No, I like Nolan and his work but it would be nice to see a DC movie without his influences on it.

Not crazy on the idea. Neither was I about Synder doing because they seem to be directors that are about style over substance. If they could keep things nailed down to reality more then maybe yeah.

You on his FB page also? That's where I saw him post it.

That is a guy doing a knock-off of an old movie, not a great example of someone bring something new to the table.

Agreed. I like variety in tone and style. There are other directors out there who can do that job. (Not Martin Campbell) But there ARE other directors out there...
