The hits just keep on coming for Warner Bros. and the DCEU. Shortly after pre-production started, The Flash movie lost another director.
Rick Famuyiwa has left the DC flick due to irreconcilable…er…creative differences. This is the second director to leave the project. Earlier this year, Seth Grahame-Smith left the director’s chair due to creative differences as well, although DC is still using his script.
While Warner Bros. did not comment on his departure, Famuyiwa remained upbeat when speaking about the split. He stated that while excited when first approached, he is disappointed with the outcome. While unable to agree creatively, Famuyiwa said he is grateful for the chance and is hopeful that other opportunities will present themselves.
As stated earlier, pre-production on the film already started. With a March 16, 2018 release date scheduled, DC needs to get a director chosen soon. It’s not an impossible task though. As we saw weeks ago, the Deadpool sequel lost its director but could fill that role soon. Given DC’s track record as of late, there is sure to concern moving forward. This isn’t the first time a director has left a DC film. Can Warner Bros. and DC find the right fit for The Flash?
