Jaume Collet-Serra to Direct the Black Adam Movie

-

Dwayne Johnson is reteaming with his Jungle Cruise director Jaume Collet-Serra for the Black Adam movie, according to Variety. Collet-Serra is currently in negotiations to helm the film based on the DC Comics character for New Line Cinema.

The trade adds that the Black Adam movie is a priority for the studio following the success of Shazam!, which has brought in $362.7 million worldwide.

Beau Flynn of FlynnPictureCo will produce along with Johnson, Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia of Seven Bucks Productions. Scott Sheldon will oversee for FlynnPicturesCo. Adam Sztykiel wrote the latest draft of the script.

In April, Dwayne Johnson said the villain and antihero Black Adam was originally supposed to have debuted in Shazam!, but it wasn’t working with them having to tell the origin stories of both Shazam! and Black Adam. Johnson also mentioned then that filming for Black Adam would start shooting in about a year.

Black Adam is based on the DC Comics character created by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck. Black Adam first appeared in the first issues of Fawcett Comics’ The Marvel Family in December 1945, and began to appear in the Shazam! comics in the 1970s.

Made for $100 million, Shazam! was directed by David F. Sandberg and stars Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Asher Angel, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Djimon Hounsou.
