While the news broke last month that directing and screenwriting duo John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein were in talks to direct the DC Comics’ Flashpoint which would foresee the return of actor Ezra Miller in the role of the Flash, the two revealed that the deal is not quite finalized.
In a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Daley and Goldstein who not only directed the new comedy Game Night but also penned the script for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Homecoming revealed that they’re still negotiating with Warner Bros. in continuing the big screen adventures of the Scarlet Speedster in Flashpoint.
While it was earlier today that rumors emerged in regards to the film including the production timeline and which villains the Flash would be going up against, Daley and Goldstein have stated that they’ve yet to work on the script but remain optimistic in taking on the job, “We have to sign the deal. Hopefully, it will work out.”
Goldstein was quick to make light of the negotiations, jokingly stating that it all boils down to parking reservations for him and Daley, “It’s all about parking spots. If you give in then you’re all the way out by craft services. You want a better spot than that.”
Considering the character’s positive reception amongst fans and moviegoers alike in Justice League, here’s hoping that a deal will soon be set in stone and that we’ll be seeing the Flash’s return to theaters much sooner than later with his ever so distinctive Rogues gallery in tow.
Spider-Man: Homecoming co-writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are still in talks to direct Flashpoint from a script penned by King Arthur: Legend of the Sword writer Joby Harold.
Flashpoint stars Ezra Miller as Barry Allen/The Flash, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, and Gal Gadot is set to make an appearance as Wonder Woman.
Flashpoint does not currently have an official release date.
