Former HAN SOLO Helmers Phil Lord And Chris Miller Have Talked To Warner Bros. About Directing THE FLASH

After seemingly being fired from the Han Solo movie by Lucasfilm, it's now been revealed that Phil Lord and Chris Miller have spoken to Warner Bros. about possibly returning to The Flash...

Phil Lord and Chris Miller penned a treatment for The Flash before Seth Grahame-Smith came in to write the screenplay and the project collapsed but it sounds like the door could be open for the duo to return to the DC Comics adaptation. According to The Wrap, the 21 Jump Street actually helmers met with the studio during the production hiatus for the Han Solo spinoff they've now been fired from.

Apparently, they "met about the possibility of directing The Flash after Rick Famuyiwa left the project over creative differences last year." This was obviously long before they were dropped from the project but it could be a sign that they were preparing to exit it even then and that there's at least a possibility they could now return to The Flash. It's hard to say for sure, of course, and the site's report is very vague. However, they do note that Robert Zemeckis remains the frontrunner for the project. 

Lord and Miller passed on directing The Flash so they could work on Han Solo, but they definitely seem better suited for a story revolving around Barry Allen than Star Wars' fan-favourite space pirate!

The Flash has been faced with a lot of issues, though, so it's possible Warner Bros. will now shy away from hiring a duo who have just left a huge project over "creative differences." What do you think?
