Seth Grahame-Smith pulls out of The Flash movie

Story by Jack Foley

SETH Grahame-Smith has withdrawn from directing The Flash movie over ‘creative differences’.

The news was broken by The Hollywood Reporter, which quotes sources. There is no statement from Grahame-Smith or Warner Bros.

The film would have marked the directorial debut of Grahame-Smith, hitherto best known as author and screenwriter of such works as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

It will still star Ezra Miller as the classic DC hero known as “the fastest man alive”. Miller’s role has already been teased as part of Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, in which he featured in a cameo.

The Flash has a release date of March 16, 2018. Prior to that, he will also appear in The Justice League Part One, which will be released in the fall of 2017.

It remains to be seen how the decision to depart will affect Grahame-Smith’s chances of directing in the near future. But he remains very much a part of the Warner Bros picture, both as a writer on the studio’s Lego Batman Movie and on Beetlejuice 2.
