Beleaguered Flash Movie To Get Page-One Rewrite, Says Report

Another blow for the slowest film sort-of alive about the fastest man alive! Warner Bros' has brought on screenwriter Joby Harold to perform something called a "page-one rewrite" on the script, according to a report from spice-of-life-themed entertainment website Variety. What the hell is a page-one rewrite? Let's ask Professor Wikipedia:

When a script's central premise or characters are good but the script is otherwise unusable, a different writer or team of writers is contracted to do an entirely new draft, often referred to as a "page one rewrite."

Oof! As if that isn't bad enough, The Flash still hasn't found a new director yet. Director Rick Famuyima departed the film in November over creative differences, potentially delaying the movie's release. Famuyima was the second director to depart The Flash, as original director Seth Grahame-Smith left back in April. The situation is so dire that latchkey star Ezra Miller pleaded openly for a new director with an "open heart."

"If you want this choice position," Miller said in an interview in November, "have a cheery disposition."

Miller is reportedly so troubled by the constant changes to his starring film that he was recently captured in a photo from the Justice League movie set, sulking in the dark.


Hopefully, this rewrite by Jody Harold, who has most recently written King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, and whose name Bleeding Cool can exclusively reveal can be rearranged to form the phrase "holy rad job," can turn things around and The Flash will finally get back on track for its planned March 2018 release date.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
