It was recently reported that David F. Sandberg’s Shazam! is set to undergo the typical additional photography and reshoots for a few weeks in November. However, it now turns out that the film is being given a few more weeks to complete the additional photography in part due to the increased budget that will allow for more pickups.
Initially, the reshoots for Shazam!– which Zachary Levi recently posted about on his Instagram page- were to go from the first of November to the 18th. Now, according to HN Entertainment, the additional photography’s wrap date is now December 22, just three days before Christmas. Given how some of the set photos have shown a winter setting and that the film itself is confirmed to take place during the holiday season, this is quite timely.
And in addition, the report also states that with the studio increasing the budget for the movie, this, in turn, allows the filmmakers to add more pickups that they felt were needed during the filmmaking process. So this doesn’t seem like the exception to the reshoots rule, as was the case with Justice League, but that it will be beneficial for the crew working on the project.
Based on this, what do you hope or believe could be added during the pickups and additional photography for Shazam!? How timely do you think it could be beneficial, given that the additional filming will wrap up in December close to the Christmas holiday? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
Directed by David F. Sandberg, Shazam! stars Asher Angel, Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou.
The film will hit theaters next year on April 5, 2019.
