Seth Grahame-Smith was set to direct the The Flash starring Ezra Miller, but is said to have raced away from the project due to “creative differences”. The screenwriter, who’s worked on movies such as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, was supposed to make her directorial debut based on the Scarlet Speedster.
The project will used the script penned by Grahame-Smith which is based off of a treatment by the Lego Movie duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. The movie is set for release on March 16, 2018 so Warner Bros don’t have too long to lock in a director – could Lord and Miller steer the vehicle that is The Flash? We personally wouldn’t mind it.
Miller’s Flash has already been introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and is shooting Justice League Part One as I type this. Is Grahame-Smith leaving the movie actually a bad thing though? He has no experience directing a movie and his specialty is obvious in zombie movies, maybe Warner Bros can bring on a veteran such as George Miller? He’s been linked with Green Lantern Corps but the idea of him tackling The Flash is exciting (to us, anyway).
