Warner Bros. is re-teaming with its Edge of Tomorrow director Doug Liman to helm Justice League Dark, the latest adaptation in the DC Entertainment universe, sources confirm to EW.

Scott Rudin is on board to produce the project and Michael Gilio will write the script.

Warner Bros. declined to comment. Liman, who is currently in post production on the Tom Cruise-starrer American Made, is dropping off of the Channing Tatum-starrer Gambit as part of this new deal. No word on who will replace him.

Guillermo Del Toro was originally attached to direct but dropped off due to other projects.

Plot details are being kept under wraps but the Justice League Dark team comprises John Constantine, Swamp Thing, Deadman, Zatanna and Etrigan the Demon.

Liman is also attached to direct the adaptation of the YA novel Chaos Walking for Lionsgate.

Variety was first to report the news.
