AceShowbiz - Ezra Miller has finally met with Warners' execs to quell concerns over the actor's recent legal problems and the negative headlines that follow. The actor and their agent reportedly had a meeting with new Warner Bros. film chairs Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy earlier this week.
Joined by their agent, CAA's Scott Metzger, Miller met with the studio's heads on Wednesday, August 24, the same day a "Batgirl" screening was held at Warner Bros.' Burbank lot. According to The Hollywood Reporter which first reported the news, they discussed not only how to stay on course for "The Flash" June 23, 2023 release date, but also to reaffirm their commitment to the movie.
During the meeting, Miller allegedly expressed remorse for bringing negative attention to the film and the company. The 29-year-old reportedly vowed to seek help after learning that De Luca and Abdy were considering all options for "The Flash", including scrapping the $200 million movie altogether if things go further south with Miller.
While the actor is said to not have minded the stream of bad headlines, they feared the possibility of the movie getting canceled and that prompted them to take action. "They care about 'The Flash'. It's one of their favorite characters to play," a source tells the outlet.
Details of the meeting were not publicly revealed, but it's said to be the first time Miller had spoken with De Luca and Abdy after they took over running the film division at the beginning of July and inherited a DC slate in various stages of post-production. Neither Warners nor Miller's spokesperson has commented on the meeting reports.
Miller has been making headlines for their arrests and erratic behavior in the past several months. After laying low and keeping silent on their issues, the actor released a statement addressing the matter earlier this month.
"Having recently gone through a time of intense crisis, I now understand that I am suffering complex mental health issues and have begun ongoing treatment," Miller said in a statement provided to Variety on August 15, announcing their plans to seek treatment.
They added, "I want to apologize to everyone that I have alarmed and upset with my past behavior. I am committed to doing the necessary work to get back to a healthy, safe and productive stage in my life."
