The Wachowskis to direct “Justice League” movie?

“Justice League” just might be the hottest new property Warner Bros. is working on, so it’s no surprise that there have been plenty of rumors surrounding its production. The first was that Ben Affleck was the frontrunner to direct the movie, though he has since come out and vehemently denied his involvement (more on that later). Now the rumor mill is saying that the Wachowskis are next in line to helm the project, and that sounds a bit more believable.

Moviehole reports the news, claiming that Lana and Andy are also on WB’s “smallish list” of directors for the movie.

“What I’m told is 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,” the site writes. “‘Justice League’ needs to be as big on character, as it does bells & whistles, and the Wachowski’s could probably offer that.”

Honestly, we wouldn’t be too surprised if the Wachowskis did helm this project. They haven’t had a massive hit since “The Matrix” trilogy, but they’re more than adept with big story concepts and CGI, so they would be a good fit for “Justice League.” Still, we’ll believe this (or whoever ends up being selected to direct the flick) when a press release from Warner Bros. lands in our inbox.

Affleck, meanwhile, told Vancouver website 24 Hrs. that he’s definitely not involved with “Justice League,” no matter how much WB is rumored to want him.

“I’m not working on the ‘Justice League.’ One of the problems with entertainment web sites is that they need to fill pages, and that’s how rumors get started,” he said “‘Justice League’ sounds really exciting, but it’s not something I’m working on.”

“Justice League” likely won’t hit theaters until 2015 or later. Will Beall was hired to write the script.

Rev Up

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
