The Flash film has had its fair share of setbacks, to say the least. Production of this movie is rumored to start in November of this year, but now another news story is making the rounds. According to The Hollywood Reporter, current Flash star Ezra Miller and acclaimed comic writer Grant Morrison are working on a script together for this movie, that they are planning to submit to Warner Bros. within the coming weeks.
Miller’s current contract with the DCEU apparently ends in May, and him writing this script with Morrison is apparently a bid for him to stay in the role.
John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are the current directors attached to the movie, and their script is reported to be more light-hearted, while Miller wants a more serious take on the character.
Warner Bros is giving Miller and Morrison a chance to see what ideas they have in store for the movie. If Warner Bros. rejects their script, there’s a possibility that Miller might leave the role.
Miller has famously been enthusiastic about the role and has shown the commitment he’s willing to take to get the character and movie right. In the above interview, he said the reason why this movie is taking so long is that he simply wants to get it right.
