David Dobkin, director of the excellent “Clay Pigeons,” as well as “Shanghai Knights,” “The Wedding Crashers” and “Fred Claus,” will direct the big-screen adaptation of DC Comics’ “The Flash.”
It will deal with the Wally West version of the Scarlet Speedster, said also to be a key element of George Miller’s coming “Justice League” movie. Adam Brody, 28, who played comic-book geek Seth Cohen on "The O.C.," is said to be in contention for the West role in "League."
The 1990 "Flash" TV series dealt with West's predecessor, Barry Allen, also said to be featured in Miller's movie.
Shawn Levy (“Big Fat Liar,” “Just Married,” “Cheaper By The Dozen,” “The Pink Panther,” “Night at the Museum”) has left the "Flash" project.
