IT: Chapter Two director Andy Muschietti has confirmed he will direct Warner Bros. and DC Films’ upcoming standalone movie for The Flash, offering fans a hint at what’s to come next for Ezra Miller’s Scarlet Speedster.
While promoting the new IT sequel, Andy Muschietti told Fandango “Yup,” when asked whether or not The Flash solo film starring Ezra Miller would be his next project. The director was also asked whether or not he would be bringing his horror sensibilities and featuring the elements of previous films at the studio in Ezra Miller’s The Flash solo outing:
“An element if horror? I don’t think so. What captivated me about the Flash is the human drama in it. The human feelings and emotions that play in the drama [of it]. It’s going to be fun, too. I can’t promise that there will be any horror [elements in it], really, but it’s a beautiful human story”
Ezra Miller recently confirmed his standalone film for The Flash was on the table. Over the summer, reports emerged Andy Muschietti was in talks to direct the long-in-development film. While Andy Muschietti seemingly confirmed his involvement in the project, it seems the IT: Chapter Two director has officially closed a deal to direct. Although he did say he was looking to take a few months off before diving into a new project.
Creative differences have long plagued The Flash movie starring Ezra Miller. While the project finally seemed to be gaining some momentum with John Frances Daily and Jonathan Goldstein on board, Ezra Miller, who was initially cast as the character in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman, began clashing with the directing duo who favored a lighter take rather than the darker vision Ezra Miller had for the character. After months of compromising with each other, John Frances Daily and Jonathan Goldstein opted to bow out entirely. While the studio rejected Ezra Miller and Grant Morrison’s script for The Flash, Ezra Miller remains attached to star in the film.
The studio is eyeing Bumblebee and Birds of Prey writer Christina Hodson to write the script. Andy Muschietti and his wife and IT producer Barbara Muschietti will produce the project with Michael Disco. Warners is hoping to be in prep mode by January 2020.
So what do you think? Is Andy Muschietti a good choice to direct The Flash movie? Are you happy Ezra Miller is still attached to play The Flash? Let us know in the comments below.
Ezra Miller was last seen as The Flash in Justice League. Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
