In this paper, we study Finsler warped product metric recently introduced by P. Marcal and Z. Shen and find characteristics differential equations for this metric to have vanishing E-curvature. We also prove that if this warped product Finsler metric is projectively flat, then it becomes a Riemannian metric.
