The Flash sets up UK shoot
Andy Muschietti is in the director’s chair for the Warner/DC film, calling the shots from a screenplay by Christina Hodson, with Barbara Muschietti and Michael Disco producing. The Flash is based on the DC comic book character that first appeared on the big screen in Justice League in 2017.
Production Intelligence subscribers can log in for more on The Flash, including the studio details, likely start date and names of key UK hires including the UPM, executive producer and production manager.
The film has had several iterations to make it to the big screen, including several changes of director, and Ezra Miller’s availability also changed as filming was delayed on the third Fantastic Beasts film, in which he plays Credence Barebone.
The Flash is scheduled for release in November 2022. It was recently reported that Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton are both due to appear in the film as Batman, possibly linked to a time-travelling trope in the screenplay.
