According to the Hollywood Reporter, actors Tom Cruise, Keanu Reeves and Jude Law were interested in appearing in Snyder's film, but refused to participate when it became clear that Warner Bros. were holding strong in regards to the budget.
Shooting will begin this fall in Vancouver, with Snyder employing many of the filming techniques he used in his previous comics adaption, "300."
