Director Doug Liman (Edge of Tomorrow, The Bourne Identity) is officially signed on to direct Warner Bros.’s Justice League Dark, according to a report from Variety.

At the same time, both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter claim that the director is no longer attached to the X-Men spinoff film Gambit, starring Channing Tatum. The split between Liman and Fox has been described as a mutual parting of ways.

Justice League Dark
has been the subject of many rumors over the years, but little to no official information or announcements have been made. Guilermo Del Toro was originally attached to direct.

The team, which originally consisted of John Constantine, Madame Xanadu, Deadman, Shade, the Changing Man and Zatanna, made its debut in 2011, under DC Comics’ New 52 publishing initiative. The central premise revolved around the more supernatural members of the DC universe responding to threats that they were better suited for than the traditional Justice League team.

No screenwriter or release date have been announced as of yet.
