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


David F. Sandberg reveals that pre-production has officially commenced on his film adaptation of Shazam! The Annabelle: Creation director shared the news over Instagram, posting two pictures taken at the Warner Bros. Studio lot of empty soda cans lined up on a drawer captioned “Day 1” and “Day 2”. Given that the movie will probably not see release well until 2019, it should give Sandberg and company plenty of time to make the Shazam movie they set out to make.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

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.
