According to Variety reporter Justin Kroll, Joby Harold has turned in the script for the Flashpoint movie to Warner Bros. Studios. Additionally, Kroll reports that, while director searches are still ongoing, Robert Zemeckis is still being considered to helm the film.

Lord and Miller originally developed the treatment for what was initially known as The Flash, but they would exit the project over creative differences with the studio.
Joby Harold took over writing duty on Flashpoint, which was announced as part of the upcoming slate of DC Films coming from Warner Bros. during San Diego Comic Con back in July. Both Seth Grahame-Smith and Rick Famuyiwa had been attached to direct in the past.
Flashpoint will star the likes of Ezra Miller, Kiersey Clemons, Billy Crudup and Gal Gadot.
