Rumor: Lord & Miller Wanted for Both 'Ghostbusters' & 'The Flash'

Phil Lord & Chris Miller

Even though we've heard that Anthony & Joe Russo were being lined up for another Ghostbusters film to follow the all-female reboot from director Paul Feig, this time with Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt involved, it sounds like Sony Pictures still has their sights set on another duo to enter the paranormal comedy franchise as well. Jeff Sneider from The Wrap mentioned on his Meet the Movie Press podcast that the studio is eyeing Phil Lord & Chris Miller for a future Ghosbusters project. Whether it's the one with Tatum and Pratt or a different spin-off remains to be seen. However, the're also wanted for another gig.

Warner Bros. is anxious to get their LEGO Movie directing duo into the DC Comics cinematic universe by having them direct The Flash, which we already know will star We Need to Talk About Kevin and Perks of Being a Wallflower breakthrough actor Ezra Miller. They already got to play with some of the DC superheroes in The LEGO Movie (it's not surprising that there were no Marvel heroes present in the film from the studio that is banking huge on Justice League), but this would be something completely different for the duo, and it would certainly get me pretty damn excited to see The Flash before any other DC flick.

Now keep in mind, there aren't any formal discussions, and this is just a rumor for now, which is why it's not in a published news report. But the prospect of Lord & Miller directing either film is a juicy one. It's not surprising that Sony is looking at the duo for a Ghostbusters movie since they wanted them to tackle Ghostbusters 3 when that was still in development. And it sounds like this would be for the Tatum and Pratt follow-up, because the Russos are going to be pretty busy with the two-part Avengers: Infinity War sequels. But surely The Flash is an appealing offer too. Anyway, take this as rumor for now, and stay tuned for more.
