Goyer Out, Levy In as "Flash" Director

by | February 5, 2007 | Comments

Joss Whedon wasn’t the only popular filmmaker to "step away" from a big superhero project over the weekend. Seems that writer/director David S. Goyer and Warner Bros. have parted ways on their adaptation of DC’s "Flash" character. Stepping in to helm the flick will be Shawn Levy.

Based on what The Hollywood Reporter tells us, it certainly looks like WB wants to go a little lighter on this particular flick. And since Mr. Goyer is best known for moody screenplays like "Blade" and "Batman Begins," he’s now moving on to other (inevitably comic book-related) projects.

Mr. Levy, for his part, steps into "The Flash" having directed comedies like "Just Married," "The Pink Panther," and the recent hit "Night at the Museum." Apparently Goyer’s screenplay will be used in the early re-writing stages, but we can probably expect a much sunnier "Flash" than previously anticipated.

But hey, if this project keeps "The Pink Panther 2" on the back burner for a few more years, that’s fine with me.
