Dope actor Kiersey Clemons will play the female lead, Irish West, in the upcoming The Flash movie.
Insiders reveal that the actor will portray the tough journalist and love interest of Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen aka The Flash, according to Variety.
Clemons reunites with Dope director Rick Famuyiwa on the movie. She previously appeared in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising alongside Chloe Moretz.
She can next be seen in Little Bitches and Flatliners. The 22-year-old actor will reportedly make her debut as Iris West in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Justice League, which is currently being filmed in London.
The filming of The Flash is expected to begin sometime this year. Geoff Johns is attached to produce the film along with Alex Gartner, Dan Mazer and Charles Roven.
The Flash will hit US theatres on March 16, 2018. In the film, while working in his lab during a storm one night, a bolt of lightning strikes a tray of chemicals soaking Barry Allen with its contents.
Now able to move at super-speed, Barry becomes The Flash protecting Central City from the threats it faces.
