According to THR, Seth Grahame-Smith is in talks to write and direct the Flash movie starring Ezra Miller. Grahame-Smith is the author of the books Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. (via ComicsAlliance)
Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The LEGO Movie) were set to lead to the project earlier this year, but they got a better offer: A Han Solo prequel film.
In the 11 years since Warner Bros. first announced a Flash movie was in development, they’ve gone through so many directors and writers that all I can say is: Don’t get too attached. Or too upset. Chances are even if he signs on, plans will change again.
The Flash movie, set in the same world as Batman v. Superman, is scheduled for 2018. If all goes well, we’ll have seen four years of the Flash TV show by then. Just throwing that out there for perspective.
