Warners Moves Fast On “The Flash”

“Green Lantern” writers Marc Guggenheim, Michael Green and Greg Berlanti will be turning in their final draft of the script for “The Flash” film to Warner Bros. Pictures in December reports Deadline.

The trio will also turn in a treatment for the “Green Lantern” sequel at the same time. No-one is yet set to direct “The Flash” though rumours that Berlanti would get the job now seem doubtful.

An source tells the site “He won’t want to direct it because he kinda wants to do something in between size-wise first before attempting something that large. If Warner Bros does like the script and wants him to direct it…But that’s a lot of ifs. And all of it is moot if they don’t dig the script. Green Lantern wasn’t real until the studio liked the draft.”

‘Flash’ is expected to be the studio’s next superhero feature project after “Green Lantern,” “Batman 3” and “Superman”.

Moviehole have also picked up a casting rumour that “The Hangover” star Bradley Cooper is under consideration for the titular role.

If true it makes for an amusing irony. Cooper was originally going to play “Green Lantern” but lost out to Ryan Reynolds, whereas Reynolds was originally set to play “The Flash”.
