Los Angeles, April 30 (IANS) Director Seth Grahame-Smith is reportedly leaving “The Flash” due to “creative differences” with production house Warner Bros.
“The Flash” would have been the feature directorial debut for Grahame-Smith, who authored and wrote the screenplays for “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”.
Grahame-Smith wrote the script for “The Flash”, based on a treatment from writers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Ezra Miller is starring as the protagonist in the film and was introduced in Warner’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, which did not do as well at the box office.
Warner Bros. has set “The Flash” for release on March 3, 2018, so it may not have to shift that date should it be able to get another director on board soon, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
Miller is also appearing as the Flash in “Justice League Part 1”, which began shooting this month with Zack Snyder as director.
