Producers John Francis Daly and Jonathan Goldstein worked on the project since January 2018, but after a series of creative conflicts they decided to opt out of the film on their own.
As noted by The Hollywood Reporter, the stumbling block was the tone of the picture. A couple of directors (they wrote a blockbuster Spiderman: Homecoming) wanted to make a comedy, and Ezra Miller hoped to see a dark movie.
It got to the point that the leading man began to write his own script with the author of comics, Grant Morrison, but the studio did not approve of their joint work.
Now Warner Bros. negotiates with Andres Musketti. If the director of “It” takes up the work, his sister Barbara will act as a producer of the film.
The script for the picture will write Christina Hodson – the author of “Bumblebee.”
Apparently, the studio wants to finally move the project off the ground. She plans to start preproduction in January 2020.
Ezra Miller played Flash for the first time in Batman vs. Superman 2016, after which he reappeared in the Justice League.
Andres Musketti is primarily known for his work in the horror genre. He became one of the most sought-after Hollywood directors after the phenomenal success of “It”, which collected $ 700 million in worldwide hire.
