Dark Universe, better known as the film adaptation of DC’s Justice League Dark, has found a famous director. Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity, Edge of Tomorrow, Swingers) will helm the superhero flick, according to Variety, after reportedly departing the Channing Tatum–starring X-Men spinoff Gambit.

Justice League Dark is the superhero team that includes John Constantine, Deadman and Madame Xanadu. Michael Gilio will reportedly pen the script for Dark Universe, although Warner Bros. has yet to confirm.

There’s no timetable on the Justice League Dark film quite yet, although it will follow the standard Justice League adaptation, starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot as superhero friends/super-friends. Zack Snyder’s opus is due out Nov. 17, 2017.
