The Flash will Ezra Miller reprising his Justice League role as the DC Extended Universe’s Barry Allen.

Taron Egerton-Jamie Foxx’s Tights-Free ‘Robin Hood’ Closes CinemaCon

Taron Egerton-Jamie Foxx’s Tights-Free ‘Robin Hood’ Closes CinemaCon
Jamie Foxx had a clear message for the nation’s theater owners Thursday: his upcoming “Robin Hood” movie is plenty serious.

“There are no tights,” he asserted to the crowd at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. “This is grown-man business.”

“Robin Hood” was the final movie footage to be shown at the four-day CinemaCon as the final title of the 11th studio presentation. The trailer showed Taron Egerton as Robin Hood, a war-hardened crusader, and Foxx portraying Little John, a Moorish commander mounting an audacious revolt against the corrupt English crown — along with stealing from the rich to give to the poor.

Eve Hewson stars as Maid Marian. “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Jamie Dornan will portray Will Scarlett, the half-brother of Robin Hood, and Ben Mendelsohn portrays the Sheriff of Nottingham.

Egerton called Mendelsohn “everyone’s favorite villain,” adding that this particular portrayal is “reptilian.”

Michael B. Jordan is Producing and May Star in a WWII Action Drama Called The Liberators

Michael B. Jordan is set to produce a new World War II action drama called The Liberators and it sounds awesome! With Jordan producing the film, there's obviously a chance that he'll also star in it, but that has yet to be seen.

The film is based on a spec script written by Madison Turner and it tells the story of the 761st tank battalion regiment in World War II. The battalion was an entirely African-American combat unit whose heroism led to the desegregation of the armed forces.

They were known as the "Black Panthers" after their unit's distinctive insignia; their motto was "Come out fighting". The battalion received a Presidential Unit Citation for its actions. In addition, a large number of individual members also received medals, including one Medal of Honor, 11 Silver Stars and about 300 Purple Hearts. They have been called "one of the most effective tank battalions in

Flashpoint: what's happening with The Flash movie?

Mike Cecchini Feb 28, 2018

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein haven't officially signed on for Flashpoint, but they have a vision for The Flash movie.

The Flash solo movie has had trouble getting off the starting blocks. While star Ezra Miller was cast well before 2016's Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice was in production (his Flash makes a brief appearance in that film) or the release of 2017's Justice League, other elements of the movie, notably those related to script and director, haven't been as stable. Recently, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (writers of Spider-Man: Homecoming and directors of comedies like Vacation and Game Night) have been linked to the directing job (they are quick to note that they are still only "in negotiations" and that nothing has yet been finalized with the studio), with Joby Harold working on the most recent script.

‘Flashpoint’ Recruits John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to Direct

After multiple false starts, it seems that the ‘Flashpoint‘ movie is finally found it’s legs. Variety is reporting that John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, the directors behind ‘Vacation‘ reboot, are in negotiations to helm The Flash’s first standalone film. Although Warner Bros. has declined to comment, the success of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming‘–which the duo wrote–along with their upcoming directorial effort, ‘Game Night‘, the move makes sense from the studio’s perspective. By tapping the Daley and Goldstein, the studio is essentially saying that they are looking for a more comedic tone for the ‘Flashpoint‘ movie that is akin to what we saw in ‘Justice League’.

The film has had quite the rocky road to the screen thus far. Seth Grahame-Smith was originally tapped to direct, but ended up having creative differences with the studio. Upon his departure, director Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) stepped into the director’s chair,

After a job well done on last year’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are currently in negotiation talks with Warner Bros to direct the forthcoming Flash stand-alone movie, Flashpoint.

Warner Bros haven’t been in too much of a rush in finding the right fit to take the helm of The film – which seess Ezra Miller reprising his role – as Miller has been preparing for another one of their blockbuster favourites, the sequel to Fantastic Beasts The Crimes of Grindelwald.

The studio had originally eyed Ben Affleck to direct but after he turned down the job.

Flash Movie in Negotiations With Directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein

  • Cinelinx
Flash may have two new directors very soon, as Warner Bros. prepares to do a complete overhaul for that fastest man alive's solo film!  

Undoubtedly, the man that stole the show in Justice League was Ezra Miller as The Flash.  He was witty, smart, hilarious, and just downright entertaining to watch.  It only makes sense that WB would want to utilize this character to the fullest and putting him in a broody, downtrodden film simply won't do.  That's why when the latest Flashpoint director, Rick Famuyiwa, left the project, WB decided to trash the idea and have Joby Harold do a Page 1 Rewrite, taking the movie in a new direction.

According to a report by Variety, that new direction happens to be comedic as Warner Bros. is in negotiations with the directing duo, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to helm the new project.  The duo is responsible for creating

Ben Affleck Was Initially Offered The Chance To Direct Flashpoint

It’s official: Flashpoint is no longer a rudderless ship.

More than a year has passed since Rick Famuyiwa parted ways with Warner Bros. – the Dope filmmaker dropped out due to creative differences all the way back in 2016 – and now, the studio has tapped Spider-Man: Homecoming scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to helm Barry Allen’s long-anticipated solo movie.

Had things panned out differently, though, Variety’s scoop would have signaled the announcement of Ben Affleck as director, not Daley and Goldstein. According to today’s findings, The Batman (?) and Justice League actor was initially courted for Flashpoint, but ultimately refused. Whether that’s further proof that Affleck is beginning to distance himself from the DC Extended Universe is something we’ll leave to you, but it does present some food for thought.

Because let’s face it, the writer-director has been casting doubt over his Dceu future

Flashpoint Movie Gets Vacation Directors Daley and Goldstein

Warner Bros. has finally brought on new filmmakers for its long-awaited Flashpoint movie, with John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein (Vacation, Game Night) entering negotiations to direct. The studio had previously been courting Ben Affleck to direct this movie, and while he ultimately passed, that may have explained the rumor from last month that the actor will return as Batman in the Flashpoint movie, but not in The Batman, with his involvement in that project still very much up in the air. Warner Bros. had no comment on the story, and while it may be some time before there's confirmation, it seems clear the Flashpoint movie is finally back on the right track.

The project has had more than its fair share of ups and downs, with The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller first tapped to direct this project a few years ago, but they ultimately

Spider-Man: Homecoming” scribes John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are in negotiations to direct “Flashpoint,” the Flash standalone movie starring Ezra Miller.

Warner Bros. had no comment.

The studio had initially courted Ben Affleck to return to the director’s chair, but he passed on the gig. By tapping Daley and Goldstein, the studio seems to eye a comedic tone for the film, given the duo’s directing background on movies like “Vacation” and the upcoming “Game Night,” starring Jason Bateman.

The two are no strangers to the comic-book world, having penned the script to the smash hit “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” which they were also on the shortlist to direct.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan Is Batman On Epic New Flashpoint Poster

The Dceu’s in a bit of trouble right now, that’s no secret. Justice League failed to impress both critically and financially and the studio’s future slate is looking a bit uncertain right now. Though they did announce what’s coming down the pipeline the other week at Comic-Con Experience Brazil, we’ve also heard that some of those films may not end up actually coming to fruition. If there is one project though that’s definitely a priority for Warner Bros., it’s Flashpoint.

For those who don’t know, in comic book lore, the “Flashpoint” arc sees Barry Allen zip back in time to save his mother, but he inadvertently triggers a domino effect that spreads throughout the DC Universe. And so, Thomas and Martha wind up surviving that infamous mugging, but the untimely death of Bruce leads the Wayne family down two very separate tracks: one to vigilantism,
