After Green Lantern and Superman, The Flash is expected to be Warner Bros. and DC Comics next priority as far as feature films go. Deadline is reporting that a final draft for The Flash is being turned into Warner Bros. sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
No story details have been revealed at this time, but as previously /warner-bros-taps-green-lantern-writers-for-the-flash-and-green-lantern-2/reported, Green Lantern screenwriters Marc Guggenheim and Michael Green are penning this upcoming DC Comics adaptation, with Life as We Know It director Greg Berlanti contributing to the overall arc of the story being told. No official announcement has been made in regards to who will direct this upcoming big screen version of The Flash, but Deadline says its doubtful that Berlanti will helm the project.
An insider has stated, "He won't want to direct it because he kinda wants to do something in between size-wise first before attempting something that large. If Warner Bros does like the script and wants him to direct it...But that's a lot of ifs. And all of it is moot if they don't dig the script. Green Lantern wasn't real until the studio liked the draft."
In related news, Moviehole has heard a rumor that The Hangover 2's Bradley Cooper is being considered for the lead role in The Flash. The actor was originally up for the role of Hal Jordan in Green Lantern, but lost out to Ryan Reynolds. It is said that Warner Bros. is very "keen" on Cooper, and that we should be hearing his name in relation to this project sometime soon.
