Warner Brothers' THE FLASH Loses Director

There’s been quite a few questions over Warner Brothers’ upcoming Flash movie, and now a further question mark has been thrown over the project with the news that director Seth Grahame-Smith has departed the film.

The Hollywood Reporter has word that Grahame-Smith, best known for penning Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, has left The Flash due to the ever-popular “creative differences”.

To star Ezra Miller, whose Scarlet Speedster debuted in this year’s Batman v Superman, one of the biggest problems of The Flash was how to do something different to The CW’s hugely popular Grant Gustin-headlined show. It had previously been said that the DCCU Flash movie was to stay true to Barry Allen whilst also telling a different story to The CW’s The Flash. The problem there, though, is that the TV series has been knocking it out of the park, essentially telling the definitive story of Barry. So then you have the issue of trying to do something fresh and different to something that is the perfect way to handle The Flash.

Where the DCCU is concerned, The Flash has a screenplay in place from The LEGO Movie’s Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, but now the film needs to find itself a new director.

At present, The Flash is set for a March 16th, 2018 release, but before that we’ll see Ezra Miller’s Sultan of Speed as part of Zack Snyder’s Justice League: Part One when that arrives on November 10th, 2017.

As ever, expect more on this as it develops.
