While the Flash stand-alone movie is temporarily stalled, Warner Bros. has brought on Joby Harold to do a rewrite.
The studio is re-envisioning the entire movie since the departure of director Rick Famuyiwa, who exited the DC project over “creative differences” back in October.
Ezra Miller will star as Barry Allen, who next appears in-character in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League movie. (Miller had small cameos in last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad). Kiersey Clemons (Iris West) and Billy Crudup (Barry’s dad) are both attached to the feature, with the pair brought on during Famuyiwa’s tenure.
Famuyiwa was the last person to handle a re-write on the script. Seth Grahame-Smith, who was at one time attached to direct, also did a draft, working off a treatment by Lego Movie‘s Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
Harold wrote Guy Ritchie’s upcoming King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (also a Warner Bros. project). He also has multiple features in development, including Lionsgate and Appian Way’s Robin Hood, starring Taron Egerton.
