The Flash Goes Back To The Drawing Board
Since losing director Rick Famuyiwa The Flash film has been on hold until a replacement can be found. Now it seem that the film is in worse shape than we all thought, as Warner Bros. has decided to take script in different direction. The studio has reportedly tapped Joby Harold to do a page-one rewrite.
The latest draft was written Famuyiwa and the one before that was written by Seth Grahame-Smith. The reason for Famuyiwa’s exit from the project was to do with executives disagreeing with the direction he had taken the script.
The project has been going through problem after problem, with writers and directors continually dropping out, so this comes no surprise. Ezra Miller, who is currently attached to play the scarlet speedster, is getting ready to start shoot Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2. Both Fantastic Beasts and The Flash are set to hit theatres next year, but with The Flash taking such a big step backward the question is will it make its release date? Moreover will this set the DCEU back in any way if the film does not come out when the studio originally intends?
Along with Miller The Flash is set to star Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, Billy Crudup as Henry Allen, and Victor Stone, who will playing Cyborg in the upcoming Justice League film.
