While they have yet to find their next directing job, “Lego Movie” producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are looking to help Warner Bros. get the wheels moving on one of the studio’s most popular DC Comics properties, “The Flash.”

Sources tell Variety that Lord and Miller are developing the story for the comicbook adaptation but have not yet decided whether they will direct. Alex Gartner is producing the pic.

Ezra Miller will star as the titular hero. The standalone film will hit theaters on Mar. 23, 2018.

Lord and Miller have a number of projects in development, including a sequel to “The Lego Movie.” They are repped by UTA.

    Honestly, Lord/Miller writing, with some input from Geoff Johns and Ezra Miller acting, this has more than just the potential to be amazing(and forget about the CW show, this is gonna be awesome).
