Director Seth Grahame-Smith has recently bid goodbye to “The Flash” movie as frustrations heat up between him and Warner Bros.
The director has also written scripts for “Pride & Prejudice & Zombies” and “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” Despite having “The Flash” as his first movie to direct, Seth Grahame-Smith has already worked for “Dark Shadows” and “Beetlejuice 2” for its screenplays.
“The Flash,” which will star Ezra Miller, also appeared in the recent “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
The movie will be shown March 3, 2018. Despite Seth Grahame-Smith’s dropping out of the film, Slash Film noted that it still has a lot of time to look for a replacement.
“With a little under two years to go, the project has plenty of time to find a new director and get back on track,” the report said.
This is not the first time Warner Bros. dealt with a director who backed out from a film. Same situation happened a year ago when director Michelle MacLaren dropped out of “Wonder Woman” production due to the same “creative differences.”
She was then replaced y Patty Jenkins. “Wonder Woman” will be released on June 2, 2017.
Grahame-Smith’s decision to drop work with Warner Bros. came after the sudden fall of box office sales for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.”
