The Flash movie loses director Seth Grahame-Smith

Warner Brothers has been hit with a minor setback. They have just lost The Flash director Seth Grahame-Smith. Studio executives are now looking for a new director.

According to Hollywood Reporter, Grahame-Smith left due to creative differences with the studio. The Flash was to be his first film as a director.

Ezra Miller will star as Barry Allen, who becomes the Flash after a freak accident grants him powers of super-speed. He made a brief cameo appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Miller will reprise his role in 2017’s The Justice League Part One.


The author-screenwriter wrote the script with Phil Lord and Chris Miller of The Lego Movie fame. Despite Grahame-Smith’s decision to walk, he is attached to many Warner Bros films. However, his script for The Flash is being used by the studio.

The Flash is heading for a March 16, 2018 release date. One can hope finding a new director won’t slow the Scarlet Speedster down. After all, he is the Fastest Man Alive.
