Writer Seth Grahame-Smith to make feature-film debut with The Flash

10.05.2015

Last we heard, filmmaking team Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (THE LEGO MOVIE, 21 JUMP STREET) were developing a story for THE FLASH that is, "a different take on superhero stuff." That's something we hear time and time again as new superheroes are introduced into the world of cinema, but when it comes to these two guys, I think you can take their word for it. To further cement that fact home, Warner Bros. and DC have just chosen their director for the job: Seth Grahame-Smith.

If the name sounds familiar, he's the writer behind such stories as "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." The man has been super busy in the screenwriting world, penning the upcoming BEETLEJUICE 2 and THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE, but this will mark his first directing gig for a feature-film.

Considering the talent involved, it's clear that DC is probably going a more comedic route with The Flash, compared to the likes of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. It's a smart move on their part, as one of the reasons Marvel's films are so successful is because they bring different genres and overall vibes into the fold. I know there's a lot of folks who watch the current Flash TV show, so here's hoping they can do something different with the film that will be equally entertaining to fans.

THE FLASH, starring Ezra Miller, is scheduled to hit theaters on March 23, 2018.

I kinda feel the same. Gustin has proved he can be a great Barry Allen and Flash and it would feel weird with this new guy whom looks kinda younger and out of place in that respects. Meh. See what happens

Sorry I actually don't wish any success on this movie. I have zero interest in seeing it. I detest Ezra Miller to such a level I am skipping this, I hate that they're not doing a shared universe, and frankly I can't imagine they'll come up with any semblance of a story that will rival what S1 Flash just did. So nope could care less who they have writing it, won't be there. Only two ways I'll be watching the Flash, on tv on Tuesdays, and because by default he happens to be in the Justice League

Gustin is the Flash period.

For a man who extremely sceptical about the TV show, I really do feel like Gustin earned the right to this role. He's doing a great job in the show and the costumes and everything are fine for me and would translate to big screen. I would have had someone with a little more charisma to do this role given that this flash has to fit in with Afflecks Batman, cavills superman and Momoa's Aquaman, looking at Miller I'd have preferred an older actor if they weren't going to use Gustin

As much as I love the show, I'm hoping the film version blows it away.
