Greg Berlanti has made a name for himself by creating superhero shows like The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning. Berlanti, who last directed a movie in 2010 (Life As We Know It), has a new film coming that goes in a completely different direction — Love, Simon is about a closeted gay teenager who’s trying to find balance in a chaotic life. Berlanti explained to us that the challenge of doing something totally new is why he wanted to direct the film. (Click on the media bar below to hear Greg Berlanti)
