Ezra Miller is definitely on the young side, appearing college age, but will have a difficult time equally Grant Gustin’s appeal on the CW show.

The Lego Movie‘s Phil Lord and Chris Miller were hired to work on the script, with the possibility of directing down the line. But the pair landed the directing job for Disney’s Han Solo spinoff, taking them out of the running to helm.

Then Seth Grahame-Smith, the scribe behind Dark Shadows andAbraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, was hired to write and direct. The Flash would have been his feature directing debut. But he split this spring over “creative differences.”

Miller is the only actor attached and will next be seen in theaters later this year in the Harry Potter spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The Flash will be headed into production sometime next year as the film is scheduled to open on March 16, 2018.
