Seth Grahame-Smith has reportedly dropped out of directing Warner Bros’ The Flash over “creative differences.”
The superhero film will star Ezra Miller in the titular role, who was teased in March’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
Grahame-Smith, the author and screenwriter of such works as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, was to have made his directorial debut on the project based on the iconic DC superheroo, said The Hollywood Reporter.
The project will retain Grahame-Smith’s script, which he wrote working off of a treatment by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the Lego Movie duo who once were eyeing it as a possible directing vehicle.
The Flash already has a release date, March 16, 2018, and Miller is portraying the classic hero known as “the fastest man alive.”
Miller’s Flash, aka Barry Allen, was introduced in a cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and is now shooting The Justice League Part One, which will be released in the fall of 2017.
Grahame-Smith still remains involved in other Warner’s projects. He is a writer on the studio’s Lego Batman Movie and is working on Beetlejuice 2.
