Ben Affleck Was Reportedly Approached About Directing The FLASHPOINT Movie As Recently As Last Week
There are now conflicting reports about Warner Bros. approaching Ben Affleck to helm the Flashpoint movie, with one source claiming the studio may have come to the Justice League star very recently indeed.
Since then, there have been conflicting updates on this, with Collider's Steve Weintraub claiming the Academy Award-winning director was never approached about the film at all. However, Variety's Justin Kroll, who first broke the story, has now shared an update of his own.
According to him, WB may have offered Affleck the job as recently as this week
All I'll say is Affleck was approached by WB about directing it in the last week and that's coming from people in his camp and from WB, so believe it, don't believe it, I honestly don't care. I've moved on to the next one— Justin Kroll (@krolljvar) January 17, 2018
Of course, Affleck passed on the offer so this is all moot now - but if it is accurate, it does suggest that Daley and Goldstein were enlisted very late in the game and were likely far from WB's first choice.
Probably not a great sign, but we'll leave that for you guys to discuss!
