During an interview with Deadline (via Screen Rant), George Miller was promoting his new film, Three Thousand Years of Longing, the Australian director ended up reflecting on the process of making a movie and even mentioned the Justice League Mortal film that ended up being cancelled by Warner Bros.
Here’s what Miller had to say on the whole matter:
Yeah, for me it does because it has happened several times. I’ve been sacked off a film — that happened with Contact and I was very enthusiastic about that. Then, we were very keen to do Justice League back around that time, and there were already photographs and publicity out, and then that fell away. I’m not saying that’s what jinxed it, but I think it’s just better to finish the film and offer it to audiences; to let them take on the story or not.
