Flashpoint directors want us to know they’re not signed on yet…

February 23rd, 2018 by Marc Comments

You may recall only a few days ago we revealed that the Flashpoint movie had its directors signed up (here) in the form of writer/directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein.

Well, as we earlier speculated, it seems that, while the guys behind Horrible Bosses and Game Night are certainly in line for the gig, the deal has not been done.

“We’re still negotiating,” Daley told THR“deals are in the works right now.”

They also say they’ve not started work on the script since the deal isn’t finalised: “We have to sign the deal. Hopefully, it will work out.”

It seems the guys won’t ne thrown by the fact that it’s a big deal directing a movie like Flashpoint with Goldstein joking: “It’s all about parking spots. If you give in then you’re all the way out by craft services. You want a better spot than that.”

Given that Batgirl lost Joss Whedon last night (here) and it looks like Nightwing may be close to losing its director too (at least for now), we’re not really surprised that nothing is a signed and sealed yet. Are you?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
