Justice League Back On Hold

Producer Osborne blames tax squabbles.

by | April 8, 2008 | Comments

George Miller‘s on-again, off-again Justice League of America adaptation is off again.

So says producer Barrie Osborne, who tells New Zealand’s Dominion Post that haggling over an Australian tax break has put JLA (now being referred to as Justice League Mortal) back on hold pending an appeal — or a new location. From the article:

Miller had hoped his film would qualify for Australia’s Film Finance Corporation’s 40 per cent tax offset — meaning it would pay less tax. But to qualify a film had to have significant Australian content or be created and owned by Australians.

Osborne said Miller was still trying to get the tax break, but was seriously considering moving the production to New Zealand, or possibly to Canada or the United States.

Osborne also tells the Post that Justice League‘s return to limbo affects the Weta Workshop, where staff “had been hired specifically” to do costume design work for the project; the producer says it’s “likely” that some will lose their jobs.
