FLASHPOINT Movie Gets a Pair of Comedy Directors

'Flash' Standalone Film Taps Directors John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein (EXCLUSIVE)

According to a new report from Variety, "Spider-Man: Homecoming" screenwriters John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein are now in negotiations to direct the Flash solo movie, which stars Ezra Miller in the lead role.

Flashpoint's script has been in flux over the previous year as Warner Bros. asked Joby Harold to do a page-one rewrite in January 2017, giving a facelift to Famuyiwa's original draft. While it seems like the studio's current focus is on nabbing the Spider-Man: Homecoming scriptwriters, the report also reveals that Warner Bros. had first looked for the directorial skills of Affleck. John and Jonathan were the writing duo behind 2011's "Horrible Bosses".

Affleck was previously set to write, direct, and star in the solo Batman movie, spinning out of his appearances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad, andJustice League. They also wrote and directed Jason Bateman and Rachel McAdams' Game Night, a film that blends the thriller/comedy genres and is set to open February 23.

However, the US-led coalition is supporting the Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and YPG in the Syrian conflict . The Turkish president added that Turkey would conduct the operation in Afrin with Turkish-backed Syrian opposition forces.

Despite a fairly extensive start to production between the studio and Famuyiwa, which included the director pulling together at least one key member of the supporting cast in Kiersey Clemons' Iris West; irreconcilable differences between the two parties found the project again without someone in the director's chair.

If the deal makes they will take on a script by Joby Harold, who did a page one rewrite baking in the comedic elements.

Flashpoint had been on hold since 2016, when director Rick Famuyiwa, best known for the movie Dope, walked away from the project.
