"Shazam!" it's another comic turned film!


New Line Cinema is teaming with DC Comics to create a feature based on the classic comic book "Shazam!", reports Variety. New Line is in final talks with DC to acquire feature rights on the 60-year-old title, in which mild-mannered Billy Batson discovers that he can call on the powers of an ancient Egyptian wizard, Shazam, and thereafter undertakes heroic exploits. Comics industry vet and Batman franchise exec producer Michael Uslan will serve as executive producer on the project.
