Hello Hero Club, some bad news has been revealed from the Comic front as the Flash film has lost yet another director. It was recently confirmed by Variety that Rick Famuyima has left the project. It is stated that he has left due to “creative differences” between him and the studio. Seth Grahame-Smith was the original director for the film and the project was eventually taken over by director Rick Famuyima.
Famuyima had this comment to say about his exit.
“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,” Famuyiwa said in a statement. “I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humor, and heart. While it’s disappointing that we couldn’t come together creatively on the project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for opportunities to tell stories that speak to a fresh generational, topical, and multicultural point of view. I wish Warner Brothers, DC, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns, and Ezra Miller all the best as they continue their journey into the speed force.”
Currently no other details about the current status of the film has been confirmed at this time so stay tune for updates. The Flash is currently still set for March 16, 2018.
