You know anything to do with a Justice League Dark movie is a big deal to us…well, maybe just Seppin, and we were excited to hear Doug Liman talk about his upcoming movie over the weekend.
“I think people will be surprised how character driven and how intimate Justice League Dark is — in kind of a field of bloated comic book movies. We’ve found a way to do something that’s actually really personal and small, and that’s my goal. The Wall is about character. The scenario allows me to dive into what I think is… I just love people! I love putting people in crazy situations. For John Constantine, we have an amazing set-up for him for Justice League Dark that’s really human.”
Liman also revealed that he’s turning to some classic horror movies for inspiration. “It’s going to have real horror elements, for sure,” he confirmed. “I love early horror films, be it The Exorcist, or Carrie, The Omen. In the same way that Bourne Identity, I went back to ’70s paranoia. There’s stuff to be mined from the people who have come before me that I’m planning to bring to Justice League Dark. And also the arena, my good friend Simon Kinberg, with Deadpool really pushed the arena. I’m never going to do something that’s straight forward, but I’m not going to do something campy either. I have a take on it that isn’t like anything else out there. At the end of the day I make character driven movies.”
Oh, was that a tease for a rated R movie coming our way? We sure hope so because Justice League Dark should be made for more mature audiences and we really hope they are going that route.
