With the upcoming Justice League movie hitting the box office shortly, Warner Bros. and DC executives are hoping that the film will reach the same level of box office success as Wonder Woman. As a result, it is not surprising to hear that the studios are doing whatever it takes to make the movie a hit.
According to reports, the studio is spending $25 million to have extensive reshoots in Los Angeles and London, which have lasted around two months. While this is a lot longer and more expensive than most movies, Girls Trip was filmed on a budget of only $20 million; it has not been easy to free up the schedules of various in-demand actors.
Ezra Miller, the actor who plays The Flash, is currently reprising his role of Credence Barebone in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel. Also, Henry Cavil is working on the sixth Mission Impossible movie.
While Warner Bros. has been able to overcome MIller’s scheduling issues, they haven’t had quite as much success with Henry Cavill. The actor initially didn’t expect to return to Justice League for reshoots until after he had completed the sixth Mission: Impossible movie. Now the actor has had to jump back and forth between productions.
However, as Cavill grew a mustache for the Mission: Impossible movie role, Paramount did not allow him to shave the facial hair for the Justice League reshoots. So, the mustache will have to be digitally removed during post-production, which seems like it will cost a lot of money to eliminate some peach fuzz for the Warner Bros. studio.
But at least Henry Cavill isn’t taking it too seriously.
It’s nice to know that they are putting all their efforts into making sure that the movie is up to par. Despite the issues, it seems like the studio is attempting to keep the ball rolling following Wonder Woman’s success and starting a new launch of DC franchised films.
