FLASHPOINT Finds Directors In SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Scribes John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein
Warner Bros. has enlisted Game Night directors John Francis Daley & Jonathan Goldstein to helm their upcoming Flashpoint standalone film, which will star Ezra Miller in the lead role. Come take a look!
According to their report, WB's first choice for director was actually the Batman himself, Ben Affleck (Justice League), but for whatever reason, the 2x Academy Award-winner decided to pass and the project ultimately went to Daley & Goldstein. Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future) was also said to be in the running, but it appears as though the studio was not interested in waiting for his schedule to clear up.
A production start date remains unset since Miller is still in the midst of filming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, but Joby Harold (Robin Hood; King Arthur: Legend of the Sword) did recently turn in a new draft of the screenplay after a page one rewrite.
Daley & Goldstein are probably best known for helming the critically-reviled Vacation reboot and as two of the screenwriters on Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming, which was the biggest superhero movie of 2017. They've also penned the scripts for Horrible Bosses, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, and Horrible Bosses 2. Ahead of Flashpoint, they have the Jason Bateman/Rachel McAdams comedy Game Night slated to hit theaters next month.
