5 Reasons Doug Liman As ‘Dark Universe’ Director Works


He rewrites like a champ!

One of his newest films, Edge Of Tomorrow, was one of the most beloved summer blockbusters of 2014. I don’t mean to speak for everyone, but it’s safe to say no one was really HYPED for that film. The premise seemed intriguing and the trailers were entertaining enough to get people to go. Although the marketing was ultimately a failure, it wasn’t until reviews and early word of mouth from audiences began to surface that the film was exceptionally great!

Behind the scenes on the other hand seemed to be a bit rougher around the edges. Doug Liman was doing constant rewrites to the film, to the point where him and his team were nearly making the movie up as they were filming. How would this bode well for Dark Universe though? Well, it’s a comic book movie and changes after changes will occur. From the producers trying to get their way, to the studio trying to get what they think they want out of it. Being able to mold to those people but not bend for them is something that can be invaluable to the studio and for us the audiences.
