With the script still not finished (it’s due to be done by Christmas) it’s going to be quite a while before we hear anything solid on casting, but Moviehole is reporting another casting rumor has popped up. Apparently, Screen Rant let slip that rumors through the grapevine hint that the star of J.J. Abrams "Star Trek" movie, Chris Pine as a sought-after to play "The Flash"
Chris Pine, who is now involved in both the “Star Trek” and Jack Ryan franchises has his plate pretty full right now and may not have the time to commit to another franchise. I like Chris Pine, he did a decent job in "Star Trek", but I really do not see him playing The Flash. I am really betting on Bradley Cooper to play the Flash, he just fits the Barry Allen character in my mind.
“The Flash” is going to be a very different kinda superhero movie by sounds. Screenwriter Marc Guggenheim tells Newsarama that it’ll even encompass shades of… “Silence of the Lambs”!?
“We’re being true to the whole Barry Allen science police… We’re being true to those origins and updating them for the 21st century. I feel like in many ways the movie is three movies in one. It’s part thriller, that forensic, cool, Seven, Silence of the Lambs; Part superhero movie and part sports movie because there’s an athleticism to this character that other superheroes don’t have… And you get to see how all three of those elements inform each other and make the whole movie even better. It’s sort of like the way in Green Lantern we took a superhero movie and combined it with a space opera, here we’re combining the superhero movie with these other two genres and it’s just a blast.”What do you think of Chris Pine as The Flash? Do you have someone else in mind?
