Director Rick Famuyima Exits THE FLASH Movie 

The Flash movie that will star Ezra Miller as the title character has lost its second director Rick Famuyima due to creative differences.

The DC/WB entity is having a hard time keeping its directors for The Flash, and we’re not sure exactly why. It was announced earlier that the second director hired to direct The Flash, Rick Famuyima, has left the production. Apparently, the split it due to creative differences between Famuyima and Warner Bros.

rick-famuyiwa“When I was approached by Warner Bros and DC about the possibility of directing The Flash, I was excited about the opportunity to enter this amazing world of characters that I loved growing up, and still do to this day. I was also excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor,” Famuyiwa said in a statement. “I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humor, and heart. While it’s disappointing that we couldn’t come together creatively on the project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for opportunities to tell stories that speak to a fresh generational, topical, and multicultural point of view. I wish Warner Brothers, DC, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns, and Ezra Miller all the best as they continue their journey into the speed force.”

Warner Bros. won’t comment on the situation, but at this point, where the film is far into pre-production, the studio is probably more nervous now than it was before when first hired director Seth Grahame-Smith left before pre-production even started.

Kiersey Clemons, who has signed onto the movie to work with Famuyima again (she starred in his Sundance 2015 film Dope,) was understandably upset of this news, but is dedicated to the film.

“All I can do is give it up to the gods. Let’s see what happens. Let’s see who’s going to jump in.”

“Ezra and I are going to do what we promised to do from the beginning,” Clemons says. “No matter who the director is, I am going to do what I think Iris should be.”

With a production start date of March 2017, they still have some time to look for a new director, but not that much time, especially if they want to keep the release date for the movie on the following year, March 16, 2018.
