In the month of August 2019, as SMASH made it known to you, the filmmaker Andrés Muschietti and the screenwriter Christina Hudson joined the Scarlet Speedster project, one of the ones that has given Warner Bros the most headaches.
The South American director was the fourth director to pass through the ranks of The Flash, after the departures of Seth Grahame-Smith, Rick Famuyiwa and the duo of filmmakers Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley, who left the film for different reasons.
But if you’re surprised by how many directors The Flash had, you’ll be left behind when you find out how many writers went through the project, until writer Christina Hodson shaped this film.
Hodson already has experience in the DC Universe, being the author of Birds of Prey, in addition to building the script for Batgirl, a film that will arrive in the course of 2022, either on the big screen or on digital platforms.
ScreenRant reproduces a report that the Deadline site had access to thanks to the Writers Guild of America, where its sources pointed out that The Flash movie has passed through the hands of 45 writersa surprising amount for a Hollywood production.
The same guild pointed out that for this type of production, up to 20 screenwriters have been reported to participate in the development of these films during different stages, from pre-production to premiere.
Who has collaborated with the history of The Flash?
Screenwriters who have graced the Flash project on the big screen include Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie), Seth Grahame-Smith (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Joby Harold ( Obi-Wan Kenobi) and John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein (Spider-Man: Homecoming)
Even Ezra Miller, protagonist of the film, teamed up with Grant Morrison, the author of great sagas in DC Comics such as All-Star Superman, Joe the Barbarian and The Return of Bruce Wayne.
“Ezra had a ton of ideas; he came to me with a book of ideas. And then we work together. It really was just the two of us. He came here to Scotland and we hung out and wrote this thing. I loved itMorrison told Rolling Stone after their script was rejected by Warner Bros.
“We didn’t get the job they were looking for, which was to establish a franchise and get other characters involved.”.
With the script by Christina Hodson, The Flash will be directed by Argentine filmmaker Andrés Muschetti and will star Ezra Miller as Barry Allen / Flash, Sasha Calle as Supergirl, Maribel Verdú as Nora Allen, Kiersey Clemons as Iris West, and Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck, both as Bruce Wayne / Batman.
