MOVIES: Black Adam - News Roundup *Updated 31st October 2017*



31st October 2017 - Adam Sztykiel in Negotiations to Write Script

Undateable creator Adam Sztykiel is in negotiations to pen the screenplay for the New Line Cinema and DC Comics film Black Adam, starring Dwayne Johnson as the antihero. Black Adam, who was first introduced in 1945, serves as the main archnemesis to Shazam!, a teen boy who can transform himself into an adult superhero.

The studio originally planned for the Black Adam character to be a part of the Shazam! standalone, which recently cast Zachary Levi in the titular role.

Johnson, who has long been attached to the role, is producing the solo pic with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia via their Seven Bucks Productions banner, along with Beau Flynn’s FlynnPictureCo. Scott Sheldon will oversee for FlynnPictureCo.

19th January 2017 - Black Adam Spinoff in Development

New Line Cinema and DC Entertainment are doubling down on comic book hero Shazam.

New Line, which has been for over a decade developing a movie on the longtime DC character, will concurrently develop a movie centering on Black Adam, with Dwayne Johnson attached to star as Shazam’s arch-nemesis.

The move stems from last week’s high-level meeting with Johnson and DC Films co-head and comics author Geoff Johns, after which the actor took to social media to promise “hope, optimism & fun.”

But on a deeper level, the meeting led to a reconfiguring of the Shazam! movie. Johnson has been attached to play Black Adam since around 2008. Since that time, he has become arguably the biggest male actor on the planet. To execs, it made no sense to have a man of Johnson’s stature be just a villain and a supporting character in an expensive tentpole. Thus a decision was made to spin off Black Adam into his own film.
