Warner Bros look for their third Director for the Scarlet Speedster.
Rick Famuyiwa has left Warner Bros. looking for their third Director for the upcoming Flash movie. Citing creative differences, Famuyiwa released this statement:
“When I was approached by Warner Bros and DC about the possibility of directing The Flash, I was excited about the opportunity to enter this amazing world of characters that I loved growing up, and still do to this day. I was also excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor. I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humour and heart. While it’s disappointing that we couldn’t come together creatively on this project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for oppportunities to tell stories that speak to fresh generational, topical and multi-cultural point of view. I wish Warner Bros. DC, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns and Ezra Miller all the best as they continue their journey into the speed force.”
It’s interesting that Famuyiwa hoped that he would continue to look for stories to tell that are “topical” and “multi-cultural”. Does that mean Famuyiwa didn’t think the Warner Bros. version of The Flash would be that?
There has been no comment as yet from Warner Bros. who had Seth Grahame-Smith also leave the movie in April. No word as yet as to who will jump next into the speed-force. Fan favourite and guest Director on the hit CW series The Flash, Kevin Smith has yet to comment on rumours that he maybe in line to take the helm.
