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.”
