Cape Breton Post - - Arts/Entertainment -

LOS AN­GE­LES — The re­cent death of di­rec­tor Zack Sny­der’s daugh­ter has driven the prom­i­nent film­maker to step away from fin­ish­ing the en­sem­ble su­per­hero movie “Jus­tice League.”

A source close to pro­duc­tion who was not au­tho­rized to speak pub­licly said Mon­day that Joss Whe­don would take over com­plet­ing the film, which should still hit its Nov. 17 re­lease.

Sny­der and his wife and pro­duc­ing part­ner Deb­o­rah Sny­der told The Hol­ly­wood Reporter they will be us­ing the time away to fo­cus on their fam­ily and seven chil­dren.

The Reporter story stated Sny­der’s 20-year-old daugh­ter, Au­tumn, killed her­self in March. Coro­ner’s spokesman Ed Win­ter said Au­tumn Sny­der’s March 12 death is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated as a pos­si­ble sui­cide due to an over­dose of pre­scrip­tion med­i­ca­tions. The of­fi­cial cause of death has been de­ferred pend­ing tox­i­col­ogy re­sults.
