Los Angeles, May 1 (IANS) Seth Grahame-Smith, who was supposed to direct the upcoming superhero film “The Flash”, has left the Warner Bros. project due to “creative differences”.
Grahame-Smith, the author and screenwriter of “Pride and Prejudice”, “Zombies” and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”, was making his directorial debut with the upcoming film.
The project will still use Grahame-Smith’s script which was written off an earlier treatment by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
Lord and Miller were once touted to direct “The Flash”, but they were pretty occupied with “The Lego Batman Movie” and “The Lego Movie Sequel” coming in February 2017 and May 2018 respectively.
Grahame-Smith signed the directing deal in October.
The makers still have plenty of time to find a new director because filming is likely to begin only next year.
“The Flash”, starring Ezra Miller in the title role, is slated to release on March 3, 2018.
