Film adaptation of ‘The Flash’ loses Seth Grahame-Smith as director, keeps his screenplay
Warner Bros. has ‘plenty of time’ to find another director.
Grahame-Smith was originally set to direct The Flash, a film that he also wrote. The Hollywood Reporter reported that he’s instead left the project over “creative differences.” However, the Warner Bros. film will keep Grahame-Smith’s script nonetheless.
The Flash is slated to premiere March 16, 2018, leaving THR to speculate that the studio has “plenty of time” to find another director.
Perhaps best known as the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Grahame-Smith first became involved in film following the novel’s film adaptation. He served as the executive producer of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a film based off yet another one of his books.
Grahame-Smith had previously been attached to the film for nearly seven months, though the announcement of his directorial involvement was met with tepid enthusiasm. It seems that his departure may have been predictable for some Flash fans, who were eager to bash the newbie director on Twitter.
the more I think about THE FLASH movie the less likely I’m going to see it.. sorry WB you lost me with Seth…

So WB picked Seth Graham-Smith to write/direct The Flash movie? I like him as a writer but I’m not 100% convinced he should direct.

Seth Grahame Smith is directing The Flash movie?!?! Its like picking your vacation”Should I go to Syria or Hawaii? I think Syria.” WTF WB?!

Losing Seth Graham-Smith for WB’s Flash movie arguably for the best when his credits include Dark Shadows, Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter & PPZ

lmao literally the other day i was like “uh idk about this director for the flash movie”

The flash movie should be a “Fun” movie. But it does need to have some seriousness as well. That director I doubt could do that.

I’m worried for 2018’s Flash movie. Many people will hate Erza Miller for replacing Grant Gustin. The director isn’t experienced too…

Thankfully, Warner Bros. appears to have no love lost over the departure: Grahame-Smith will reportedly remain involved in the forthcoming Lego Batman Movie and Beetlejuice 2—two projects that appear to be more Grahame-Smith’s speed.
