Ezra Miller scored the role of a lifetime when he was cast as The Flash in the DC Universe, but it seems he’ll be doing much more than playing this beloved character. Warner Bros. wants him to co-write the script for this highly-anticipated superhero flick.

This news came as a shock for fans of the franchise since the studio first hired John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein. This duo reportedly wanted to take a lighthearted approach to the material and had a creative clash with Miller who felt it would be better to go into a darker direction.

“Flash” movie encountered many bumps along the way, and Warner Bros. bosses are hoping the lead actor will be able to get it back on track. They hired Ezra Miller to co-write the script, alongside comic book author Grant Morrison.

Young actor first played Barry Allen aka The Flash in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and later reprised the role in Justice League. His contract with the studio is set to expire in May, and there’s a chance he’ll walk away from the project if he fails to find common ground with the studio.
