According exclusively to The Hollywood Reporter, director Andy Muschietti is in talks with Warner Bros. to direct The Flash movie starring Ezra Miller. Muschietti is best known for directing the Stephen King adaptation horror movies IT and IT: Chapter Two. With screenplay writer Christina Hodson, who wrote the screenplays for successful Bumblebee and the upcoming DC Universe movie Birds of Prey, is onboard to helm the script for The Flash, after the departure of writing team John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who were also onboard to direct the movie.
If this is true, this means the script that Ezra Miller worked on with Grant Morrison was passed on by the Warner Bros. This will also makes it the fifth director to come onboard the project, as the movie has already gone through four directors, two which were a team of directors, starting off with writing and directing team Phil Lord and Christopher Miller in 2015, to then be replaced by Seth Grahame-Smith in the same year as a writer and director, for then in mid-2016 director Rick Famuyiwa to jump onboard to leave the project in November of that year, leaving director and writing team John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to join the project in early 2017, to then leave the project with now Andy Muschietti in talks to possibly taking the helm.
At this point most fans are losing interest in this project due to the push and pull of the changes of directors, writers, titles and plot. Honestly who would have thought a movie about one of the coolest and popular DC Comics character would be so hard to be made?
