The forthcoming big screen version of The Flash is getting a script rewrite.
According to Variety, Joby Harold will do a “page one rewrite” while Warner Bros. look for a new director having lost Rick Famuyiwa. The studio want Harold to “take [the] script in a different direction”.
The writer himself has a slim resume having written and directed the 2007 thriller Awake and executive produced Edge of Tomorrow… but that’s really it.
The last we heard about the project was from star lead Ezra Miller who revealed that the teams working on the film were “changing all the time“.
“There’s often a lot of flux in who the team of the production of a film is before that production starts, and in this case, you hear about it, because it’s a critical figure — the directors that have been coming on and leaving,” Miller said.
“For me, it’s sort of a tragic relay race, and we’ve had a couple really incredible people carry this baton, and their marks are left on that baton, and the work that they’ve given to the project will certainly be represented in whatever the final product comes to be.”
More as we get it.
