'The Flash' Movie Looking to 'Neighbors 2' Star Kiersey Clemons for Female Lead
Warner Bros' is looking for more 'Dope' help as Kiersey Clemons, who starred in the indie darling for 'The Flash' director Rick Famuyiwa, is the reported favorite to star opposite Ezra Miller in the DC Films comic book film. No deal is in place just yet but it's assumed the role is that of Iris West, Barry Allen's friend and relentless reporter.
Miller appeared in a cameo in this year's 'Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice' as the Flash and production for the solo film is right on schedule and starts later this year. Famuyiwa recently replaced novice director Seth Grahame-Smith to helm the blockbuster after he and the studio parted ways over "creative differences." Grahame-Smith remains as the screenwriter from a treatment by Chris Miller and Phil Lord.
'The Flash' is scheduled for March 16, 2018 but that is subject to change.
