Vacation directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley are in talks to direct Flashpoint, Warner Bros.' Flash-centric film based on the comic book event of the same name, according to Variety.

The Hollywood trade also reports that directing duties were intitially offered to Ben Affleck, who is said to have declined. Goldstein and Daley have their own superhero pedigree, having written Spider-Man: Homecoming for Marvel Studios.

Dope Director Rick Famuyiwa was previously attached to direct, though he exited over creative differences. Famuyiwa was preceded by Seth Graeme-Smith, who wrote the film's first draft when it was still simply titled The Flash, and was also initially scheduled to direct.

Actor Ezra Miller, depicted above as the Flash in 2017's Justice League, is expected to reprise his role for Flashpoint, which is projected for a 2020 theatrical release.
