BACK TO THE FUTURE Director Robert Zemeckis Rumored To Be In Negotiations To Helm THE FLASH Movie

Though we'll have to take this with a major pinch of salt for now, a new rumor suggest that fan-favorite director Robert Zemeckis may be in talks to helm The Flash movie for Warner Brothers...

Warner Bros.' standalone outing for The Flash has not had the easiest time on its journey to the big screen - and it hasn't even entered the pre-production phase yet. The studio has been searching for a new director for the project since the last filmmaker to be attached, Rick Famuyiwa, stepped away, but now we might just have some good news for worried fans of The Scarlet Speedster.

Screen Junkies reckons "numerous sources" have confirmed to them that none other than Robert Zemeckis (the Back to The Future trilogy, Forest Gump, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) has entered talks to come aboard the picture and guide Ezra Miller's Fastest Man Alive on his first solo big screen adventure. Word is WB are still taking meeting with other directors, however, so even if this is on the level it doesn't sound like a done deal by any stretch.

Tell us, how would you feel about Zemeckis helming The Flash? Sound off below.
