A new rumor is floating about and it concerns a role for Star Trek XI‘s Chris Pine.
According to the rumor, Pine is one of the possibilities to be cast as the lead in The Flash.
Pine is not the only actor who is rumored to be in contention for the lead role in The Flash. Bradley Cooper (The Hangover, The A-Team) is another name mentioned, although Cooper denies that he is in contention.
The Flash is several years away from release, although Marc Guggenheim is currently working on the script. According to Guggenheim, those involved with The Flash are “being true to the whole Barry Allen science police. We’re being true to those origins and updating them for the 21st century.”
