The Flash is one of the most ambitious projects of Warner Bros. but ever since it was announced, it has been experiencing hurdles.
Either people have declined to be associated with the project or have left after saying yes. The latest to leave is director Rick Famuyiwa and the one who has joined is Joby Harold.
Warner Bros. has hired Joby Harold to redraft the script of The Flash, reports Variety. Though the company is silent about this development, sources say that Joby has been roped in to do a page-one rewriting of the script. Interestingly, Joby's association is not new with the studio. He wrote King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and has also got two more projects that include a new Robin Hood movie and a Twilight Zone film as well.
As for the director, the Studio is yet to find the replacement of Famuyiwa and it is said that the reason he left the project was creative differences with the producers. The executives were reportedly not happy with the way he was taking the script in a particular direction. It may be mentioned here that the script of The Flash has been changed before as well. Seth Grahame-Smith had penned the earlier draft, claims ComicBook.com.
Well, the change in the script has been also hinted at by actor Ezra Miller, who will be portraying the speedy superhero in The Flash. During the promotions of his movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, he indicated that the crew was focusing on the story at present. Well, it does seem like the project is facing a lot of issues but it is not like there is no stability to the superhero movie.
Miller is very much on board and has also expressed excitement at the prospect of playing the character. Geoff Johns has been also brought along to assist the film and Miller was full of praise for the knowledge of the comic guru. He said that Johns is a good guy to have around and one cannot get someone with a deeper knowledge of this universe than him.
The Flash is expected to be released in March 2018.
