Following the success of Marvel's The Avengers, it should be no surprise Warner Bros. is eager to begin production on a film adaptation of Justice League of America.

Today, Warner Bros. announced that they have brought on Gangster Squad writer Will Beall to develop the screenplay for Justice League of America. The studio secretly hired the scribe last year to develop this DC superhero ensemble, anticipating the box office success of Marvel's The Avengers.

The writer has not completed the script for the film yet, but he is gaining popularity at the studio. He is currently writing scripts for Warner's Lethal Weapon and Logan's Run reboots.

The studio has tried to make this movie happen in the past, but the project was pulled in 2008 due to the lack of tax breaks. That version would have had George Miller directing with Adam Brody as the Flash, Megan Gale as Wonder Woman and Armie Hammer as Batman.

Warner Bros. already has two projects showcasing Justice League members in development. Green Lantern writers Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green are writing a script for The Flash, and Michael Goldenberg is working on the Wonder Woman screenplay.

This project is still in early development.
