    Weta Workshop to Create Justice League Costumes

    Source: Dan
    January 7, 2008
    The Dominion Post has confirmed that Weta Workshop will design the costumes for Happy Feet director George Miller's Justice League adaptation.

    The film's Wellington-based American producer, Barrie Osborne, who produced Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, confirmed Weta Workshop's involvement.

    "They are doing all the costumes and they're doing a brilliant job," he said from Sydney, where filming will start soon. "A lot of people thought it would be too hard, that you can only make those things in Hollywood."

    No budget has been announced for the long-awaited movie, which would bring together a range of superheroes including Superman, Batman, The Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.

    Weta Workshop specialises in physical effects such as costumes, props, models and movie sets, and Weta Digital does computer-generated visual effects.

    Osborne said it was possible Weta Digital could also be involved in the film, based on the DC Comics series, but that would depend on the studio's commitments to other projects.

    "George Miller has a great take on the material, so it elevates it to something that's not a comic-book movie," he said.

    Yea no problem man, its always best to check all current threads with new posts from the last time u read the thread or a new thread so u know what everyone is talking about and dont feel stupid when someone says we are talking about this already.
    So if any mods are around i think we should close this thread now since this news is talked about in the FAQ and producer barrie talks weta/miller threads.

    Something about JL has emmerged on Weta Workshop's official site in the profiles of one of the staff involved with movie.

    Source:http://www.wetaworkshop.co.nz/about/crew/profile/Christian_Pearce


    On his official site and his blog Pearce has posted drawings of what looks like his favorite of the Justice League...the Batman.I'm pretty certain these are NOT the actual designs he's done for WETA just things he's done in his downtime.

    I hope one day we'll get to see what WETA cooked up for this movie.

    Another name has been added to this movies' crew page on IMDb. Carlos Slater is listed as "Costume technician: special effects". He works for WETA as well and appears to be a prosthetics specialist.
