According to a source from Superhero Hype. John Malkovich and Dennis Quaid have been cast in the roles of Ra's Al Ghul and James Gordon respectively.

Gotham Knights to showcase Hush Aftermath

Jeph Loeb may be finished with Hush, but the new writer of Gotham Knights, Andy Lieberman intends to explore some of the villains that appeared in Hush.

“My first arc deals directly with what Jim Lee and Jeph Loeb did in “Hush,” Lieberman said. “My issue is #50 and it, along with #51 and #52 will be 30 pages, with the first arc being six books long. I think the story we’ve developed, combined with some amazingly kick ass art work, will not disappoint. Look, I’d even be as bold as to make a Brubakeresque-money-back-guarantee but seeing as it wouldn’t be my money fans might think that somewhat disingenuous - and DC would hunt me down and kill me. But if fans stay with Gotham Knights even for the first three books, I really think they’ll be hooked.
