Rick Famuyiwa leaves the ‘Flash’ movie over creative differences

Rick Famuyiwa  left “The Flash” over creative differences with Warner Bros. Famuyiwa is the second director to depart Warner Bros.’ “Flash” film, after Seth-Grahame-Smith  left the project earlier this year.


“When I was approached by Warner Bros and DC about the possibility of directing The Flash, I was excited about the opportunity to enter this amazing world of characters that I loved growing up, and still do to this day. I was also excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor,” “I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humor, and heart. While it’s disappointing that we couldn’t come together creatively on the project, I remain grateful for the opportunity. I will continue to look for opportunities to tell stories that speak to a fresh generational, topical, and multicultural point of view. I wish Warner Brothers, DC, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns, and Ezra Miller all the best as they continue their journey into the speed force.”

“The Flash” is currently scheduled for a March 16, 2018 release
