Dan Lin, producer of the upcoming Sherlock Holmes flick and Terminator Salvation, is set to produce the story based on the DC Comics supervillain team. Justin Marks will be writing the eventual screenplay. His latest work is Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li.
"Verbinski will produce through his U-based Blind Wink banner, along with Hasbro’s Brian Goldner and Bennett Schneir, who also have an overall deal at the studio," said Variety. As you probably already know, Verbinski is already working on two geek-cred films, Bioshock and one about online-role playing addicts while Hasbro has movies based on Monopoly, Candyland and Ouiji in the pipeline.
