Hollywould: ‘The Flash,’ ‘Dune,’ and ‘Katy Keene’
The film and television business moves at a mile a minute, so keeping up with the latest news can be a little daunting. Not to worry—we have your back. In Hollywould, we’ll round up the industry developments you need to know. Here’s what you may have missed:
Star Ezra Miller has taken it upon himself to write the script for The Flash film, and he’s enlisted legendary writer Grant Morrison to help. For the movie, long plagued by production issues and delays, Miller wants a “darker” tone; he’s reportedly been butting heads with current directors, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, over the film’s style.
The Invisible Man
Speaking with Buzzfeed News, Elizabeth Moss was cagey and coy about whether she’s starring in Universal’s Invisible Man (or should that be Invisible Woman?) reboot:
“I would say I don’t think I would be replacing Johnny Depp necessarily. I can say that. But I think it’s an incredible story that maybe needs to to be retold, but maybe with a woman.”
“I’m not saying I’m doing it. I’m just saying that theoretically that would be a great idea.”
According to Coming Soon, filming’s begun on Dune. Here’s the official synopsis:
“A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.”
The Batman, sans Ben Affleck, will start filming “around the end of the year,” per director Matt Reeves.
Looking like sometime around year’s end.

According to Discussing Film, the movie is “set in the ‘90s,” and centers around a younger Batman, one “between 25 and 33 years old.”
