The last few weeks have been crazy ones for directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The duo found itself in the headlines when news broke about their untimely exit from Lucasfilm’s Han Solo movie. However, the two may not be jobless for long. Apparently DC Films is reportedly happy to have the directors sign on to direct The Flash.
Recently, The Hollywood Reporter published an in-depth article exploring Lord and Miller’s Star Wars shake-up. In the report, the site wrote that the duo is “in demand” and have a job awaiting them in The Flash.
“What will happen next for Lord and Miller isn’t clear but they are in demand and have an open berth waiting for them to direct The Flash for Warner Bros., if they chose to take it,” The Hollywood Reporter explained. “They had left that film for the Han Solo movie but could return.”
It would not be surprising for fans to learn about Lord and Miller’s return to The Flash; After all, one recent report indicates the duo met with DC Entertainment about the film. Shortly after news broke about the pair’s Han Solo rift, The Wrap learned Lord and Miller met with DC Films during a production hiatus. According to reports, the pair expressed interest in returning to The Flash following the film's directorial leave of Rick Famuyiwa last year.
For now, there is no word on whether Lord and Miller will be brought back on to The Flash officially. In recent month, rumors have circulated about DC Films and its search for a new director. As of late, director Robert Zemeckis has been the most frequent name attached to The Flash, but the reported frontrunner seems to have some hefty competition now.
In Justice League, fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is directed by Zack Snyder, from a screenplay by Chris Terrio, based on a story by Snyder and Terrio, and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Willem Dafoe, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
