Warner Bros has hired a brand new writer to start from scratch on “The Flash” movie script.
Phil Lord & Chris Miller” 21 Jump Street’s” originally penned a treatment for the film, with an option to direct. But the talented duo had too much on their plate and Warner turned to first-time filmmaker Seth Grahame-Smith. Before long Grahame-Smith was out due to creative differences and “Dope” director Rick Famuyiwa was brought on-board.
Then out of nowhere, Famuyiwa dropped out of directing “The Flash” with the ugly creative differences popping its head up once again. This left Warner behind schedule, as the film was meant to begin production for a March 2018 release.
Now according to Variety, Warner Bros has brought Joby Harold who’s writing credits include “Awake” and “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword” in to do a page-one rewrite of the script, with the studio wanting to go in a different direction with Ezra Miller’s Scarlet Speedster.
Let’s hope Joby can break the trend and nail the script for “The Flash” and Warner Bros can bring in a director who’s down with their plans for the DC Extended Universe. The film still hasn’t received a new release date, but don’t worry as we’ll get to see the character kick it with the likes of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and Cyborg in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League” which hits screens November this year.
