The Warner Brothers' DC Extended Universe continues to grow every week -- at least, when it comes to key players behind the scene. This week in particular kicks off with breaking news that Seth Grahame-Smith, best known as the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies as well as Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, will be directing the big screen iteration of [The Flash (Movie)](tag:15273) starring Ezra Miller.
Seth Grahame-Smith broke into Hollywood with the script for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Now, the list of projects that this new face has on the horizon is massive: Something Wicked This Way Comes will be his directorial debut, he'll be writing LEGO Batman for Warner Bros, and he's currently writing Beetlejuice 2. Before this, Grahame-Smith's roots reach back to TV, with his MTV teen comedy The Hard Times of RJ Berger.
As for The Flash himself, Ezra Miller's Barry Allen is expected to debut in [Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice](tag:711870) and follow his first standalone film with Justice League Part One. The hero's standalone film is based off of a treatment by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller. Ezra Miller's portrayal of the Flash, along with DC's film slate, will exist as part of a separate canon from the TV shows, where Barry Allen is played by Grant Gustin.
The Flash is expected to release in 2018.
