Los Angeles:

Actresses Rita Ora, Kiersey Clemons and Lucy Boynton are reportedly among the contenders to play the leading lady in upcoming superhero film “The Flash”.

Warner Bros Pictures and director Rick Famuyiwa are close to finding the female lead for “The Flash” movie, which stars Ezra Miller as male lead, reported Variety.

Clemons, who previously starred in Famuyiwa’s “Dope”, is the director’s top choice to star as Iris West, the leading lady in the movie. Ora, who last starred in “Fifty Shades of Grey” and Boynton of “Sing Street” fame were also among the contenders to play the journalist and love interest of Barry Allen aka The Flash.

Famuyiwa replaced Seth Grahame-Smith, who dropped out of the project due to creative differences, as director for “The Flash” movie in June. Alex Gartner, Geoff Johns, Dan Mazer and Charles Roven produce the film. The superhero flick is set for a March 16, 2018 release in US theatres.

Miller’s The Flash, who already made his debut in “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”, is also set to appear in the upcoming “Justice League” alongside full roster of iconic DC heroes, including Ben Affleck’s Batman, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, Henry Cavill’s Superman and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman.
