Flashpoint, The Dark Tower, Shazam!, And Other Film And TV News

Flashpoint, The Dark Tower, Shazam!, and other films and TV shows have made recent production news.

These productions come from studios based primarily in the United States. The production information within is subject to change.


Shazam! director David F. Sandberg says that the planned film will be more “lighthearted” than previous DC Comics adaptations. Describing the movie as a “departure” from the darker tone of the franchise’s earlier, Zack Snyder-helmed projects, Sandburg explains that he hopes to tap into the connection between Billy Batson’s wish to become a superhero and viewers’ childhood dreams of the same.


Kiersey Clemons talks about her involvement in Flashpoint. Clemons is set to portray Iris West in the upcoming Flash solo film, a role that she will also appear in for this year’s Justice League. Although she said that production is still a bit of a ways off, the actress is very much excited about working on the movie.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
