Andy Muschietti Confirms THE FLASH As His Next Movie; Calls It A "Beautiful Human Story"

It director Andy Muschietti had been reluctant to confirm his involvement in Warner Bros.' long-gestating solo outing for The Flash, but he has finally opened up about the project in a new interview...

We recently found out that The Flash movie had lost directors John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, but gained Andy Muschietti. The It Chapter Two filmmaker seemed reluctant to speak about the project when quizzed about it at SDCC, but has now confirmed his involvement.

While speaking to Fandango, Muschietti revealed that The Flash will indeed be his next movie - but fans of the director's previous work shouldn't expect to see any of his horror sensibilities reflected in the adventures of The Scarlet Speedster.

“An element of horror? I don’t think so. What captivated me about the Flash is the human drama in it,” he said. “The human feelings and emotions that play in the drama [of it]. It’s going to be fun, too. I can’t promise that there will be any horror [elements in it], really, but it’s a beautiful human story.”

Ezra Miller (who is still on board to reprise the role of Barry Allen) had been co-writing the latest draft of the script with comics author Grant Morrison. However, we now know that WB has decided not to move forward with their version and instead hired Christina Hodson (Bumblebee, Birds of Prey) to pen a brand new screenplay.

Previous reports indicated that Miller wanted a darker take on the character, which led to conflict with Daley and Goldstein who were dead set on a lighter tone. It sounds like all parties have found a compromise with the creative team of Muschietti and Hodson, so hopefully the movie actually gets off the ground this time.

Prep on The Flash expected to begin in January of next year
