Hold the front page! (And other newspaper clichés!) The Flash movie has cast the role of intrepid journalist (and Barry Allen love interest) Iris West.
She will be played by Kiersey Clemons, who previously worked with The Flash director Rick Famuyiwa on Dope (2015). She also had a part in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016) and will next year be seen in the remake of Flatliners (2017) alongside Nina Dobrev. Sounds like her star is seriously on the rise.
The Flash is based on a (hopefully substantially) rewritten script by Seth Grahame-Smith (Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Dark Shadows… you know, films you never want to see a second time).
