The Flash Movie Hires Director

7 October 2015 1:33 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Seth Grahame-Smith (writer of "Dark Shadows") is in negotiations to write and direct Warner Bros' upcoming "The Flash" comic book film, which has a treatment by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, directors of "The Lego Movie" and "21 Jump Street." At one point, Lord and Miller were planning to direct "The Flash," but left when they were offered the chance to direct a "Star Wars" spin-off, focusing on Han Solo. Their departure forced Warner Bros to begin searching for their replacement. "The Flash" will star Ezra Miller as the faster man alive. It's set to hit theaters on March 3rd, 2018. The film will be Grahame-Smith's feature directorial debut. »

‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ author to write/direct ‘The Flash’ for WB

6 October 2015 5:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

From book author to director, this man is making the leap.

As Warner Bros. puts together their line-up of superheros for the DC Universe, it seems like they will go with an interesting choice for the director of The Flash. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Seth Grahame-Smith, who has written the books Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Price and Prejudice and Zombies, will write and direct the movie that is starring Ezra Miller as the hero.

The movie got a treatment from The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller, with the potential to be directed by them, before they left to helm the Han Solo spin-off for Disney.

Grahame-Smith has yet to direct a project with screenwriting work being done at Warner Bros. on Lego Batman and Tim Burton’s adaptation of Dark Shadows. The only directing work he has done was a couple episodes of the MTV comedy, »

Seth Grahame-Smith to direct The Flash

6 October 2015 1:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Wrap is reporting that screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith will make his directorial debut with Warner Bros.’ big screen adaptation of The Flash, which will see Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being A Wallflower) star as the titular lightening-quick hero, known by day as scientist Barry Allen.

Grahame-Smith is perhaps known as the writer behind such films as Dark Shadows and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, as well as working on various mooted projects like Beetlejuice 2, the Gremlins remake/reboot, along with the upcoming The Lego Batman Movie.

The Flash is due for release on March 8th, 2018, while The Flash himself is expected to make his debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice next year.

'The Flash' Finds Its Director In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' Writer Seth Grahame-Smith

5 October 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Seth Grahame-Smith is no stranger to high profile Hollywood movies. He got his big break as the novelist behind Pride & Prejudice & Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and he also wrote the script for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows. And while most of his produced projects to date haven't been monster hits with fans, he's clearly doing something right behind the scenes because studios consistently want to be in the Grahame-Smith business.  He's been hired to write Beetlejuice 2 and The Lego Batman Movie, and Grahame-Smith's name has also been attached to Ninjago and a new Gremlins movie. But now he's in the process of landing his biggest job yet-- writing and directing DC Comics' The Flash (which is a...

The Flash Gets A Director

5 October 2015 1:37 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

While The Flash is currently tearing up our t.v. screens, DC Comics’ Scarlet Speedster will be coming to the big screen in 2018, with Ezra Miller slapping the lighting bolt on his chest to Barry Allen, the Fastest Man Alive. Previously, The Lego Movie’s Phil Lord and Chris Miller weren’t attached to write a treatment, as well as possibly directing. But with the pair opting instead to bring the adventure of a young Han Solo to life, Warner Bros. had to look elsewhere. The Hollywood Reporter has now revealed they have their man, setting their eyes on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter author Seth Grahame-Smith to write and direct. While Grahame-Smith’s screenwriting work includes Dark Shadows and the upcoming The Lego Batman Movie, this will be his directorial debut, with Warner Bros. pulling a bit of a Marvel Studios by setting loose »

Another up-and-coming director has been hired to make a big comic book movie. Following the news from last week that Taika Waititi will be directing Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok comes news, via THR, that young writer Seth Grahame-Smith has landed the job of directing DC's The Flash movie for Warner Bros. Seth Grahame-Smith is the screenwriter behind Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, the novel and the movie, as well as Dark Shadows for Tim Burton. While he has directed some episodes of "The Hard Times of Rj Berger", this will be Grahame-Smith's feature directing debut. Warner Bros is apparently finally ready to launch their big screen version of the character, with Grahame-Smith in negotiations to write and direct the movie. Read on. The report claims that in addition to Seth Grahame-Smith, they'd been looking at Phil Lord & Chris Miller for the job of The Flash until they got the Star Wars gig.

The Flash: Seth Grahame-Smith set to write and direct movie

5 October 2015 11:58 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Warner Bros' The Flash movie, starring Ezra Miller, finally has its director in place...

As season two of The CW's The Flash gets ready to premiere, there's been some substantive process on the DC movie universe version of the story.

For some time, Ezra Miller has been in place in the title role for the film, which won't cross over with the TV show. And for a while, it looked as if The Lego Movie/Jump Street duo of Chris Miller and Phil Lord were to take the project on.

However, they've since been lured to the Star Wars universe, where they're set to direct a Han Solo origins movie. As such, whilst they've written a treatment for a The Flash movie, they're not writing the script or directing it themselves.

Instead, that job has gone to Seth Grahame-Smith.

Warner Bros's The Flash movie 'to be directed by Seth Grahame-Smith'

5 October 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Following news that Taika Waititi could direct Thor: Ragnarok, Warner Bros have come up with their own left-field choice for The Flash.

According to The Wrap, Seth Grahame-Smith is set to direct the upcoming big screen outing for the DC Comics superhero.

It would mark the feature directorial debut for the writer of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Dark Shadows, as well as the upcoming Lego Batman Movie.

The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were originally rumoured to be directing The Flash.

Ezra Miller will play the eponymous superhero, who will be introduced in Zack Snyder's Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Arrow star Stephen Amell took issue with Miller being announced shortly after Grant Gustin launched the character in The CW's hit series.

The Flash is set to be released on March 3, 2018. »

'The Flash' Movie Gets Writer and Director Seth Grahame-Smith

5 October 2015 10:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in April, we reported that the extremely busy filmmaking duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller have been set to write a story treatment for Warner Bros.' The Flash. It was believed that the filmmakers would come aboard to direct, but back in July, they signed on to direct Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo Movie for LucasFilm. Today, The Hollywood Reporter has word that Seth Grahame-Smith has signed on to write and direct The Flash.

Ezra Miller has been attached to star ever since Warner Bros. announced their massive superhero movie slate last October. Back in May, Phil Lord revealed that their story will likely focus on Barry Allen, and that it will be separate from The Flash TV series, which stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen. There have been rumors that The Flash and the rest of the Justice League members will be introduced at the end »

Seth Grahame-Smith Directing Warner Bros.' Flash

5 October 2015 10:05 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If Warner Bros. and DC Comics were looking to one-up Marvel in the game of leftfield directing choices after this weekend’s announcement of Taika Waititi for Thor: Ragnarok, the companies have managed it. Prolific author, screenwriter and producer Seth Grahame-Smith is in negotiations to write and direct The Flash. Grahame-Smith, who has thus far limited his directing to two episodes of TV comedy The Hard Times Of Rj Berger, which he wrote on and produced, would seem to be a hugely unlikely candidate for the job of one of DC’s big comic book movies despite his experience behind the camera in other roles. He adapted his novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter into a film, wrote Dark Shadows for Tim Burton and has written and is producing a multitude of other projects, including a Gremlins reboot, a Beetlejuice sequel and a new Looney Toons film. He's also been dipping »

The Flash Has Finally Found Its Director

5 October 2015 9:34 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Warner Bros. has been making strides with finding directors for upcoming DC solo films over the past year. After Michelle MacLaren exited Wonder Woman due to creative differences, Patty Jenkins was hired to replace her. Then Furious 7’s James Wan was tapped to direct Aquaman. Now the word is that the studio is looking at Pride and Prejudice and Zombies writer Seth Grahame-Smith to tackle The Flash. According to THR, Grahame-Smith is currently in negotiations to helm the Scarlet Speedster’s first solo movie. If hired, this will be his second foray into the world of DC, after penning The Lego Batman Movie. Besides Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Grahame-Smith’s other notable work includes writing Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (and its film adaptation) and the screenplay for Dark Shadows, but his only directing credits are two episodes of the MTV comedy The Hard Times of Rj »

'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' & 'Dark Shadows' Writer Seth Grahame-Smith To Direct 'The Flash'

5 October 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

If Marvel started the arms race of getting quirky people to direct their superhero movies by hiring Taika Waititi to helm "Thor: Ragnarok," DC is following right behind. Today, word has arrived about who will get behind the camera for "The Flash," and it's an unexpected choice. THR reports that Seth Grahame-Smith will helm and write the Ezra Miller starring movie for Warner Bros. The author has quickly made a strong imprint in Hollywood, writing the screenplay for the adaptation of his book, "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," and becoming pals with Tim Burton, writing the wretched "Dark Shadows," and the developing "Beetlejuice 2." Not only that, next year the long brewing adaptation of Grahame-Smith's "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" hits the big screen, plus he's penning the "Lego Batman" flick.

Johnny Depp’s 10 Wildest Big-Screen Looks

18 September 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

From a blond-wigged, red-lipped transgender woman in “Before Night Falls” to the maniacal Mad Hatter in “Alice in Wonderland,” Johnny Depp’s on-screen looks have been as diverse as his film roles. The trend continues with his latest movie, “Black Mass,” in which his character of notorious Boston gangster Whitey Bulger marks yet another physical departure for the chameleonic actor (who actually voiced a chameleon in the animated pic “Rango”).

Here are the many faces of Johnny Depp:

Edward Scissorhands

Depp’s role as the titular character in his very first collaboration with director Tim Burton sparked his flurry of bizarre physical transformations. Hot off the heels of his hit TV series “21 Jump Street,” “Edward Scissorhands” proved that Depp was more than just a teen heartthrob. Aside from scissors for hands, the iconic character also has a scarred face as pale as snow and an unruly nest of jet »

Watch Eight New Clips Of Johnny Depp, Benedict Cumberbatch & Joel Edgerton In Gangster Epic 'Black Mass'

10 September 2015 6:50 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

After a decade or so of playing to the cheap seats with big, broad, increasingly unbearable comic performances in the Jack Sparrow mold, and perhaps more crucially, in films like “Dark Shadows,” “The Lone Ranger” and “Mortdecai” that died with audiences, it seems like Johnny Depp is back. The actor stars in Scott Cooper’s “Black Mass,” a crime drama in which Depp, under heavy-make up, plays Boston mobster Whitey Bulger, and with the film currently making the festival rounds at Venice, Telluride and Tiff ahead of its release next week, even the more mixed reviews, like our own, suggest that Depp is firmly on the comeback trail, and a good bet for a Best Actor Oscar nod. The film goes on release next week, and as such, Warner Bros are ramping up their marketing efforts, with eight clips from the film (plus ten minutes of B-roll footage) just landing. »
