Seth Grahame-Smith has reportedly left his directing duties on Warner Bros’ “The Flash” over “creative differences.”
The superhero film will star Ezra Miller in the titular role.
Grahame-Smith, the author and screenwriter of such works as “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”, was to have made his directorial debut on the project based on the iconic DC Entertainment scarlet-speedster superhero, said The Hollywood Reporter.
The project will retain Grahame-Smith’s script, which he wrote working off of a treatment by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the “Lego Movie” duo who once were eyeing it as a possible directing vehicle.
“The Flash” already has a release date, March 16, 2018, and Miller is portraying the classic hero known as “the fastest man alive.”
Miller’s Flash, aka Barry Allen, was introduced in a cameo appearance in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, and is now shooting “The Justice League Part One”, which will be released in the fall of 2017.
Grahame-Smith still remains involved in other Warners projects. He is a writer on the studio’s “Lego Batman” Movie and is working on “Beetlejuice 2”.
