Ezra Miller and Grant Morrison Teaming on The Flash Script


With Wonder Woman earning $821.8 million worldwide, Aquaman taking in an impressive $1.143 billion, and the expected success of Shazam! in April, Warner Bros. Pictures wants to keep the streak going with a solo The Flash movie. It looks like one thing that has been holding the project back is The Flash script, however.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have been on board the project since January of 2018. They are said to have a light-hearted approach to the material, which, considering how Ezra Miller portrayed Barry Allen/The Flash in Justice League, makes sense. And the studio reportedly prefers to go that route.

It is then surprising to learn that Ezra Miller is teaming up with comic book writer Grant Morrison on a new draft of The Flash script that would be a “darker” take on the material, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The trade says that the new draft would determine if Miller will stay on playing the speedy superhero. The studio has hired Miller and Morrison to hear their take, so it sounds like they are curious what the two will come up with.

The new draft of The Flash script could be submitted to Warners as early as next week. THR also says that Miller’s holding deal on Flash expires in May, so there’s a bit of urgency to make this new take work. Whether he stays with the role or not, Miller isn’t leaving Warner Bros., as he has a key role in the Fantastic Beasts movies.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein have also been attached to direct The Flash.

Warner Bros. Pictures is currently working on Joker, Birds of Prey, and The Suicide Squad as well.
