The changes and switch ups are still happening with Warner Bros THE FLASH movie. It now seems that there are new people in the mix to not only direct the Scarlet Speedsters solo film but to scribe the screenplay as well.
Andy Muschietti, the director of It and the upcoming It: Chapter Two, is in talks to direct the action-adventure project based on the DC Comics superhero. His partner and sister, Barbara Muschietti, will produce. joining Michael Disco on the project. Also Christina Hodson, the writer of Bumblebee and the upcoming Warner Bros. BIRDS OF PREY is set to write the film.
Now this may sound a bit confusing to some as last heard both John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were writing not only writing the film as well as set to direct it but they have moved on. As well Ezra Miller, who is still attached to play the fastest man alive also wrote a version of the script along comic book writer, Grant Morrison but Warner Bros. has moved forward without that one either.
We are still getting a solo film based on the scarlet speedster. The Flash as it will now be named and not Flashpoint as previously called, is currently getting an overhaul in its script by directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. The two directors were finally locked in after much shuffling around in the directors chair position.
Currently there is no solid release nor shooting expectation date but Kiersey Clemons who was set to play Iris West has chimed in about a potential timetable. Yes. What I will say is that [Warner Bros. gets] to approve every job that I do and, so far, I’m not doing Flash for the rest of the year, we know that. I’m doing other things. But let’s hope for 2019.”
It seems as if Warner Bros may end up trying to rush production to hopefully shoot for a
possible 2020 release. But something says this is not what fans may want to hear even though they have been wanting the solo Flash project to hit the big screen.
