Embattled actor Ezra Miller and her agent met with Warner Bros. honchos Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy on Wednesday, the Hollywood Reporter said Friday. On the agenda? The fate of The Flash.
Sources told the Hollywood Reporter that a recent mea culpa from Miller came after the actor’s team learned that De Luca and Abdy — longtime film producers who acquired Warner Bros. Former Chairman Toby Emmerich’s Film Department in June – reviewing all options for next summer’s release of ‘The Flash’.
All options including the “Batgirl” solution: That is, not releasing the $200 million superhero film at all.
But Miller, using she/she pronouns, apparently takes care of the flash. “It’s one of her favorite characters,” a source told the outlet.
So, according to reports, CAA actor-agent Scott Metzger showed up to chat about how to keep the Tentpole movie on track towards its June 23, 2023 release date. An apology was also offered for bringing negative attention to the film, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The negative headlines of the last few months didn’t seem to bother Miller much – but the possibility of losing “The Flash” in the trash can bothered her a lot.
The Flash, which has been in the works for several years, is currently in post-production.
Warner Bros. did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday, and a Miller representative could not be reached.
Miller, who also plays Credence Barebone in the Fantastic Beasts franchise, said in a statement last week that “I have recently gone through a period of intense crisis and now understand that I am suffering from complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment have. ”
The statement, passed through a representative to Variety, continued. “I would like to apologize to anyone I have alarmed and upset with my behavior in the past. I am committed to doing the work necessary to return me to a healthy, safe and productive phase in my life.”
That apology capped a tumultuous past few months for Miller, including two arrests in Hawaii, a protective order in North Dakota, and a burglary investigation and charge in Vermont.
