‘The Flash’ movie starring Ezra Miller has found yet another set of directors to lead the film at DC and Warner Bros…
Let’s try this again.
The standalone ‘The Flash’ movie, which will be based on the comic book storyline known as ‘Flashpoint’, has found a new pair of directors following a long string of exits from previous people hired to helm the DC/Warner Bros. project.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are in negotiations to direct the new ‘Flash’ movie after previously directing comedies such as ‘Vacation’ and the upcoming release ‘Game Night’ starring Jason Bateman.
Perhaps what Daley and Goldstein are best known for in the superhero world, however, is penning the script for the highly successful film ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ from Marvel and Sony studios. Now it appears Daley and Goldstein would just be directing rather than writing ‘The Flash’ movie but obviously they have some hands on experience with a successful superhero project previously.
According to reports, Ben Affleck was originally tapped to direct ‘The Flash’ movie but he ultimately turned down the offer.
‘The Flash’ has been one of the most embattled projects at Warner Bros. with several changes in writers and directors since the film was first proposed. Now it appears DC and Warner Bros. have found a new pair of directors to team up with Miller, who will reprise his role as Barry Allen/The Flash after first appearing in last year’s ‘Justice League’ movie.
The ‘Flashpoint’ movie isn’t expected to go into production any time soon as Miller is about to begin filming his next role in the Harry Potter spinoff series for ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ with ‘The Flash’ movie expected for release in 2020.
