“Undateable” creator and “Due Date” scribe Adam Sztykiel is in talks to pen “Black Adam,” the Dwayne Johnson-led film about the DC Comics villain and anti-hero at Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line.
Adam was originally part of the “Shazam!” film before they were separated into two projects, with the David F. Sandberg-directed “Shazam!” casting Zachary Levi in the key role this past week.
Johnson has been attached to the role of Black Adam in one way or another for a decade, but the project still doesn’t have a director. He’s not expected to appear in “Shazam!” in any capacity.
