The Bourne Identity director Doug Liman said he is "open" to taking over DC Films' Justice League Dark - that's despite Liman himself reportedly quitting the project in the summer of 2017 over scheduling issues.
“I would be open to it. I have a very kind of contrarian approach to how I make things and I don’t want to do them the way other people have done them," Liman told ScreenRant. "You know, Impulse is an original take on superpower as you can imagine and still be satisfying. Because obviously there’s some things – you can be original and artsy and not. … Part of the reason cliches exist is because they’re satisfying to the audience so my challenge as a filmmaker has always been to do something that’s really original and still totally satisfying on a big commercial level, which I feel we’ve done with Impulse and I’d be really interested in doing that within the DC world if the right piece of material comes along.”
Impulse is a YouTube Red spin-off of Liman's 2008 film Jumper.
Liman left Justice League Dark in May 2017 over what was reported at the time to be scheduling issues, with the 52-year-old director instead began filming Chaos Walking in August. Liman is currently wrapping up reshoots on that project now.
Warner Bros. was at one time looking at It's Andrés Muschietti to take over Justice League Dark following Liman's exit, with Gerard Johnstone also under consideration.
