After Warner Bros locked down directors for Wonder Woman and Aquaman, the studio is now ready to lock on a director for another Justice League member: The Flash. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Seth Grahame-Smith is in negotiations to both write and direct The Flash. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The LEGO Movie) wrote a treatment for the project, but the duo has opted to leave The Flash in order head to a galaxy far, far away to tackle the Han Solo solo film.

Grahame-Smith is known as the author of the genre mash-up best-sellers “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.” He’s also writing the script for Warners’s Lego Batman film. Although he has directed episodes of “The Hard Times of RJ Berger” for MTV, The Flash will be Grahame-Smith’s feature directorial debut.

Charles Roven is producing the movie with Deborah and Zack Snyder are executive producing. Ezra Miller’s The Flash will be introduced in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and then more prominently in Justice League Part I.

The Flash speeds into theaters on March 3, 2018.
