That was quick!
The two final tributes in the running for the job were Constantine and Water for Elephants director, Francis Lawrence, and Bennett Miller who directed last years Oscar nominated flick, Moneyball.
Apparently, the decision came down to one simple thing: who was free to direct a movie this fall. LOL!
Are we disappointed they didn't convince Joss Whendon to take the gig? YES!!
Still, we're sure the I Am Legend filmmaker is gonna do
