Choreographer Greg Van Borssum posted a few photos of the cast for the $200 million "Justice League" movie that Warner Bros was developing back in 2007 with director George Miller (Mad Max, Happy Feet). Check out the photos below. At the time, "Superman Returns" flopped in theaters, which is why the studio recast Superman with DJ Cotrona and hired Armie Hammer as Batman, despite the fact that Christian Bale was still playing the character in "The Dark Knight" trilogy. Other cast members included Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter, Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, and Megan Gale as Wonder Woman. Not in the photos are Common as John Stewart (aka Green Lantern), Anton Yelchin as Wally West, Zoe Kazan as Iris West and Stephen Tobolowsky as Alfred Pennyworth. The film obviously never happened and Warner Bros is now »

Hollywood stuntman and choreographer Greg van Borssum is offering up a piece of 'what if' Hollywood history today, as he shares photos of the Justice League cast assembling for Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller's canceled adaptation.
Way back in 2007, after Superman Returns proved to be a disappointment, Warner Bros. planned to move forward on a Justice League movie that recast the Man of Steel with D.J. Cotrona and gave us a new Batman in Armie Hammer, even though Christian Bale was in the midst of his The Dark Knight trilogy at the same time. Also seen in the first photo are (from bottom) director George Miller, Jay Baruchel as Maxwell Lord, Hugh Keays-Byrne as Martian Manhunter. Next row finds Santiago Cabrera as Aquaman, Adam Brody as The Flash, Teresa Palmer as Talia al Ghul, stuntman Greg van Borssum, and producer Barrie M. Osborne (The Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers »
As far I believe, these images posted by Hollywood stuntman and fight choreographer, Greg Van Borssum, are the first behind-the-scenes look at George Miller's Justice League: Mortal cast. You can see: Armie Hammer ("The Lone Ranger") who would've played Batman, Adam Brody ("The O.C.") who would've been The Flash, D.J. Cotrona ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") who would've played Superman, Megan Gale ("Project Runway Australia") who would've played Wonder Woman, Santiago Cabrera ("Heroes") who would've played Aquaman, Hugh Keays-Byrne ("Mad Max: Fury Road") who would've played The Martian Manhunter, Teresa Palmer ("The Grudge 2") who would've played Talia Al Ghul and Jay Baruchel ("Goon") who would've played Maxwell Lord. Only main cast members not included in the images below are Common (John Stewart), Anton Yelchin (Wally West), Zoe Kazan (Iris West) and Stephen Tobolowsky (Alfred Pennyworth). In February of 2007, Warner Bros. hired Keiran and Michelle Mulroney to write a script »
Directed by John Hillcoat (Lawless, The Road), the project already has Kate Winslet (Divergent), Woody Harrelson (True Detective), Casey Affleck (Ain’T Them Bodies Saints), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies), Michael Pena (End Of Watch), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Gal Gadot (Batman Vs. Superman) signed up. The plot focuses on a group of corrupt police officers who come into contact with an evil Russian gang. When the mobsters blackmail the officers into performing an almost impossible heist, the only way for it to succeed is if they create a 999 (Triple Nine), the code for ‘officer down’. However, when their rookie/victim figures out their plan, all hell breaks loose.
This sounds extraordinary; just take a look at that cast list, jam-packed with talent! »

Following last night's season finale of "The Walking Dead," one of the fan favorite stars of the show will be busy during a break from the show as Deadline reports Norman Reedus has joined the ensemble cast of the crime thriller Triple Nine. John Hillcoat is directing the film about a crew of dirty cops forced by the Russian mob to pull of a seemingly impossible heist. Calling in a fake "999" (code for "officer down") is the only way to make it work, but the whole plan goes belly-up and all hell breaks loose. It's not clear what role Reedus is taking, but he would make a great corrupt cop or criminal, so he'll fit in with either side of the law. Reedus joins an insane cast that also includes Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Kate Winslet and Gal Gadot. Reedus has a »

No details were given regarding the actor's character, but he joins a cast that includes Cate Blanchett, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Christoph Waltz, Michael B. Jordan, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Teresa Palmer, Gal Gadot, Michael Peña and Woody Harrelson.
Matt Cook wrote the screenplay, which centers on a group of cops who are blackmailed by the Russian mafia to pull off an impossible heist. They realize that the only way to do so is by setting up a fellow officer to be killed, although their plan backfires when the rookie cop they set up to die foils their attack. The title refers to 999, the police code for "officer down."
To say Teresa Palmer is enjoying motherhood is clearly an undestatement. Ever since the Warm Bodies star and husband Mark Webber welcomed son Bodhi last month, the 28-year-old Austrlian actress has happily posted a number of adorable family photos on Instagram. Sure enough, Palmer shared another snap (make that three snaps) when she put up a collage over the weekend, which included a pic of her breastfeeding the couple's bundle of joy. "I love being a Mum. I love every part of it," she wrote in the caption. "I love the way I see myself differently now, as a Mother." Palmer added, "Bodhi started smiling this week, when I look him in the eye and say 'ooh' he »

The only way to pull it off is to manufacture a 999, police code for “officer down.” Their plan is turned upside down when the unsuspecting rookie they set up to die foils the attack, triggering a breakneck, »

Variety is reporting that Anthony Mackie is in talks to join John Hillcoat’s upcoming, star-studded cop drama Triple Nine. If he signs on, he’ll join an extremely impressive cast that boasts Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Gal Gadot, Woody Harrelson and Teresa Palmer.
Named after the police code that’s used when an officer requires “immediate assistance,” the film will follow a corrupt group of cops who plan on carrying out a major heist for the Russian mafia that requires they kill a rookie officer. Of course, things don’t go according to plan and complications ensue.
No word yet on which role Mackie is up for but hopefully it’s a big one. The actor has really proven himself over the last couple of years with strong turns in films like Pain & Gain, Night Catches Us, The Adjustment Bureau and of course, the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier. »
