Directing team John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein say a deal to direct DC’s Flashpoint film has not been finalized. Talks have been going on for about a month (and many, including us, have assumed they had actually followed through), but in speaking at the premiere of their latest film, Game Night, Daley says nothing has been made official:
“We’re still negotiating. Deals are in the works right now.”
Daley also said they haven’t even begun to work on a script yet:
“We have to sign the deal. Hopefully, it will work out.”
Goldstein also chimed in, albeit in a cheeky manner, saying the holdup was due to parking spaces:
“It’s all about parking spots. If you give in then you’re all the way out by craft services. You want a better spot than that.”
With the success of Spider-Man: Homecoming, which Daley and Goldstein wrote, finalizing a deal would be a step in the right direction for DC, who has been floundering, well, pretty much since the inception of its shared universe.
Flashpoint could be a real game-changer for DC, it seems like an obvious way for Ben Affleck to bow out (assuming he does) of the DC extended Universe as Batman and smoothly bring in the new actor set to portray the character.
