The Flash movie has lost its director. Seth Grahame-Smith, who was set to make his directorial debut with the Ezra Miller starter movie has decided to depart the project. The movie is set for release on 16 March 2018.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Grahame-Smith has quit the Warner Bros movie over "creative differences". Smith was the author and screenwriter of many films such as Pride And Prejudice And Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Although Smith has departed the movie, DC has decided to retain his script.
Miller was introduced in a cameo appearance in Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and the 2018's movie will be his first standalone as the "fastest man alive" aka Scarlet Speedster. The 23-year-old actor is currently filming for The Justice League Part One, which will be released in the fall of 2017.
Previously, a report in Heroic Hollywood said, five new characters may be added to the Flash solo movie. These characters are straight out of Flash Comics like Iris West, Eobard Thawne, Fred Chyre, Leonard Snart and Jay Garrick.
Speaking about his speedster character, Miller previously told Entertainment Weekly, "I'd like the character to have many dimensions. But really, I'd like him to have the usual dimensions we know and love, and then some extra ones that are part of the amazing consideration of this superhero."
"I hope to realize him as a person, and I think what's most exciting for me in superhero mythologies is when we feel the humanity of someone who is heroic — or the heroism of someone who is a flawed, deeply human person," The Perks Of Being A Wallflower actor added.
