The Flash film starring Ezra Miller recently lost its director, Rick Famuyiwa, over creative differences. The actor recently caught up with Nerdist and gave his thoughts on the situation.
“[I feel] sad, a little sad. Love Rick, but super grateful for all the work he has done. And trust the process, you know what I mean? I trust these processes. I think from a distance, observing the processes of a production of the film can seem–I dunno–interpersonal, or dramatic. But it’s actually just these are groups of people working to make a piece of art together. And you know, things work out. Things don’t work out. I definitely feel like ultimately things will work out. I’m extremely excited about The Flash. It’s funny. We’ve had sort of this tragic relay race of the passing of the baton of this project. But it feels like each person who has won the race has brought something really special to it, which I think will ultimately be in the work we create.”
The film has lost two directors so far: first Seth Grahame-Smith, and most recently Famuyiwa. Considering that both of the departures were reportedly due to ‘creative differences’, does this mean Warner Bros. is being too controlling of the property?
