Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam movie may have found its director in Jaume Collet-Serra.
According to Observer, Jaume Collet-Serra is in talks to direct New Line and DC’s highly-anticipated movie focusing on the anti-hero Black Adam. Dwayne Johnson is on board to play Black Adam, with Adam Sztykiel writing the script.
Jaume Collet-Serra is perhaps best known for directing Blake Lively’s 2016 shark movie The Shallows and the 2018 Liam Neeson action thriller The Commuter. He’s currenly working on Disney’s Jungle Cruise movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt.
Created by Otto Binder and C. C. Beck, Black Adam is the arch-nemesis of Shazam, played by Zachary Levi in the DC Extended Universe. With a Shazam! sequel currently in the works, Black Adam fans are expecting the two characters to cross paths at some point in the future.
The first Shazam! movie opened in theaters this past April and has so far grossed more than $360 million at the worldwide box office. The sequel is being written by Henry Gayden, who penned the original.
Dwayne Johnson was last seen in Fighting with My Family. His next two movies are the Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw and the Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sequel.
