Warner Bros. may have found a director for The Flash, starring Ezra Miller with a screenplay to be written by Chris Miller and Phil Lord.
New York Times best-selling author Seth Grahme-Smith has been tapped to direct the big screen adaptation of the Scarlet Speedster. It was believed that Lord and Miller would also direct the film, but the two are also directing a Young Han Solo film and a may be involved with the production of an animated Spider-Man film for Sony.
Grahme-Smith may be best known for his work with the undead. He is the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, The Last American Vampire, and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer. He also wrote the Big Book of Porn: A Penetrating Look at the World of Dirty Movies and The Spider-Man Handbook: The Ultimate Training Manual.
The author has also had a hand in several live action projects. He wrote the screenplay for Dark Shadows, a vampire movie starring Johnny Depp, the live-action film adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer, and is writing screenplays for sequels to both Gremlins and Beetlejuice.
However, Grahme-Smith’s biggest accomplishment to date may be his creation of the MTV scripted series The Hard Times of RJ Berger, which ran for two seasons, from June 6th, 2010 to May 30th 2011. He directed “Deadliest Crotch” and “Saving Dick.”
The author is also writing a screenplay for an animated Lego Batman film for Warners Bros., starring Will Arnett as Batman and Michael Cera as Robin.
The second season of The CW’s The Flash television series begins tomorrow, October 6th, 2015. Ezra Miller’s The Flash, meanwhile, is scheduled to arrive in theaters in 2018. Stay tune to The Nerd Stash for all your superhero and nerd news!
