Espinosa, Johnstone in contention for ‘Justice League Dark’

IANS | Los Angeles |

Filmmakers Daniel Espinosa and Gerard Johnstone are reportedly in the race to helm upcoming film Justice League Dark.

Warner Brothers has narrowed down the search for Justice League Dark helmers to Espinosa and Johnstone.

Espinosa is a Swedish filmmaker whose credits include Easy Money, Safe House and Child 44. He recently directed a horror sci-fier Life that reunited him with his Safe House actor Ryan Reynolds. The movie also starred Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson.

On the other hand, Johnstone is a director from New Zealand. He only has one movie under his belt — 2014’s horror comedy Housebound. It premiered at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival and revolved around a woman sentenced to house arrest in a haunted house.

Justice League Dark centers on a dark and less popular Justice League team.

The band consists of John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon. It’s developed as part of DC Extended Universe which started with Man of Steel that introduced Henry Cavill as Superman.
