The Flash might have been the most likable character from Joss Whedon's Justice League film but it turns out that he's a hard character to write a Hollywood film about, despite having a show in the CW that has lasted multiple seasons. DC's The Flash movie has gone through a number of directors and The Hollywood Reporter claims that yet another one has been chosen to helm the film.

According to the report, Andy Muschietti is the film's new director while Christina Hodson will be the new writer. Muschietti worked on the acclaimed It reboot and is also helming the upcoming sequel It: Chapter Two, which will be released this year. Horror and The Flash might not sound like a fitting combination but it's also worth noting that David F. Sandberg worked on horror films as well and he directed Shazam.

Hodson, who worked on the acclaimed Bumblebee film and is working on Birds of Prey, will now be the new screenwriter. She is also working on Birds of Prey (and The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) so it seems like she has gained a lot of traction with both DC and Warner Bros. They will no longer use the script from lead star Ezra Miller and DC legend Grant Morrison.

As of this writing, no release date for The Flash has been revealed.
