Warner Bros. may be looking to shoot Flashpoint, DC’s long-in-development standalone Flash film in the United Kingdom.
While a previous report suggests the production may be heading to Vancouver, the studio may be looking to take the Flashpoint production to the UK to utilize the soundstages at Leavesden Studios — the home to both the Wonder Woman and Justice League productions — according to OmegaUnderground.
UPDATE: FLASHPOINT expected to film stage stuff at Warner Bros. Studios in Leavesden, UK. Ezra Miller is quite familiar with the studio space as he filmed JUSTICE LEAGUE and FANTASTIC BEASTS 1-2 there.

Game Night directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are set to direct Flashpoint from a script written by King Arthur: Legend of the Sword scribe Joby Harold. Plot details are still under wraps, however, should the film stay true to the source material, Flashpoint would feature The Flash in an alternate timeline after returning to the past to save his mother.
Both Ezra Miller and Kiersey Clemons are committed to star as the titular hero and his love interest Iris West in Flashpoint, which will also feature an appearance byGal Gadot’s Wonder Woman.
A timetable for the start of production on Flashpoint is still unknown, however, the production was suggested to be in tow following DC’s Shazam! and the Wonder Woman sequel. In addition to those projects, the studio is also looking to begin production on Todd Phillips’ Joker origin movie later this year, as well as Matt Reeves’ The Batman in 2019.
