Warner Bros. let the options lapse on the young cast that director George Miller chose to play DC superhero staples. The studio, which had set Tuesday as its greenlight deadline for the pic, confirmed Wednesday the project is on indefinite hold.
The young stars, headlined so far by OC alum, Adam Brody (The Flash), were all told Thursday morning that even the film is on hold, the studio is dedicated to making it with them.
Studio reps are saying it could be the end of Summer, to beginning of next Fall before the film gets underway.
Warner Bros cited many reasons for the delay, including issues with tax breaks in Australia, where the film was set to shoot.
