Okay, so at this point, I have no idea what to call this movie. Is it The Flash? Is it Flashpoint? I don’t know what I’m doing with my life anymore. Well, no matter what it’s called, we have some news about it, so I guess it really doesn’t matter, does it?
According to a new Production Weekly report, Seth Grahame-Smith will be getting a writing credit on the movie. This makes sense, as Grahame-Smith was originally on board to write and direct the movie, but it’s a bit odd because it indicates that they’ve retained at least some of what he left behind back in 2016 — over two years ago (seriously, what have they been doing with that script?)!
Others getting writing credit are screenwriters Michael Green and Chris Brancato. The former of those writers is known for co-writing Fox’s fantastic Logan and the sci-fi film Blade Runner 2049, and the latter has had a hand in such projects as Narcos.

It’s worth noting that it’s still possible that all this will change if the studio decides to change directions once again, but as it stands, it looks like this is how things are shaking out.
When last we heard, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis-Daley were set to helm the movie, and as far as we can tell, that plan is still in place. But what story will it actually be? During 2017’s San Diego Comic-Con, the studio touted it as a Flashpoint film, but nowadays, it seems like it’ll be more of an origin film. Is Grahame-Smith’s credit on the script an indication that they’re going back to their original plan?
