Director Rick Famuyiwa has left DC’s upcoming The Flash movie.

According to THR, “creative differences” between Warner Bros. and Famuyiwa, were behind the reasons of his departure.

Sources say that the Dope director had a “vision of making a movie with more edge” which “clashed with the studio’s take.”

Famuyiwa is the second director to leave after Seth Grahame-Smith exited earlier this year.

Famuyiwa has expressed his disappointment that things didn’t work out:

“I was excited to work with Ezra Miller, who is a phenomenal young actor. I pitched a version of the film in line with my voice, humor, and heart. It’s disappointing that we couldn’t come together creatively on the project.” he told THR.

He does however “remain grateful for the opportunity”:

“I will continue to look for opportunities to tell stories that speak to a fresh generational, topical, and multicultural point of view. I wish Warner Brothers, DC, Jon Berg, Geoff Johns, and Ezra Miller all the best as they continue their journey into the speed force.” he added.

The Flash was expected to start shooting in early 2017 but now with no director currently at the helm, production and release date are now likely to be postponed.
