The Flash is slowing down, as more changes are on the way for the DC movie. There hasn't been much traction on The Flash ever since Rick Famuyiwa left the project over "creative differences" with Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. declined to comment.

The Flash now has no new director and no new release date.

Variety reports that Warner Bros. has hired Joby Harold to rewrite the screenplay which was previously written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa, despite the new writer's credits not being almost as impressive as those of the previous script workers.

The pic has been on hold since losing director Rick Famuyiwa and while it waits to find his replacement, the studio has chose to take script in different direction.

This isn't the first time The Flash feature film has hit some speed bumps. Grahame-Smith and Famuyiwa had both contributed previous drafts of the script for The Flash. With no director at the helm, it is very unlikely that the film will make its January start date, and even less likely to make its March 2018 release.

Along with scripting the upcoming King Arthur movie for Ritchie, Harold also wrote and directed the 2007 thriller Awake and penned the script for the upcoming Robin Hood movie set to star Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The secret Service) as the title character.
