The Internet is wrong—again—about George Miller and Justice League, Mad Max news

illus-failureThere are times I’m glad that here at Movie Make-out we have a very strict news reporting policy and this is one of them.

According to his representatives, there has been no change to Australian director George Miller’s involvement with the Justice League film and that another Mad Max is “being seriously worked on.” This refutes an earlier report that Dark Horizons had on its site, but has since scrubbed from its server and probably set on fire, which stated that (according to Coming Soon):

George Miller appeared on the Sydney-based morning talk show “Sunrise” on Monday and confirmed that he’s no longer involved with the Justice League movie in any capacity; that if the project does get going again, he expects that it’ll be recast as “the studios seem to want bigger stars in their superhero movies now”; [and] that he’d like to work with Mel Gibson again and while the actor doesn’t want to do the Mad Max script he wrote, he hasn’t given up on that possibility just yet.

(Kind of specific for something that has absolutely no basis in fact, huh?)

The updated Dark Horizons announcement explains that “the original scooper, a usually reliable source, also seems to have vanished into the electronic ether.”

    While it’s good that you’re not reporting incorrect information, I have no idea what you’re not reporting about here, or what they were wrong about. Is he not doing Justice League? Is he now doing Mad Max? I’m confused.

    He’s still on Justice League and he’s working on something having to do with Mad Max. The earlier DH story said he’d been on an Australian TV show and said that he wasn’t doing JL or something like that, but the DH tipster was wrong.

    Nas, he is (still) officially attached to both Justice League and Mad Max 4, but neither of them are really moving anywhere right now.

    (I’ve edited the article to include the meat of the rumor.)
