Shazam! Gets Screenwriter


Back in October, Shazam! had been transferred from New Line to Warner Bros. Screenwriter John August stated that they were not interested in his action/comedy direction for the character, even though that is how the character had been portrayed in comic books over the past 70 years, and the project, which at one time had Dwayne “The Rock ” Johnson attached to play Black Adam, looked to be dead.

According to reports, Warner Bros. has hired Bill Birch and Geoff Johns to write the new script for Shazam!. Peter Segal (Get Smart) is still set to direct, and he will produce. The studio is reportedly looking to get back to the original source material for inspiration. Shazam! is the story of Billy Batson, who transforms into Captain Marvel when he says the word “Shazam!”
