Following a breakout performance in New Line's box office record-breaker It, Jack Dylan Grazer has been added to the cast of the studio's DC Comic film, Shazam!. He'll join Zachary Levi (Thor films, Chuck, Tangled), who will play "world's mightiest mortal", and and Asher Angel, who will play Billy Batson in DC adaptation. Created by C.C. Beck and writer Bill Parker, the character was first published by Fawcett Comics. Shazam himself is the alter-ego of teenager Billy Batson who has the ability to say the word "Shazam", and transform into an adult superhero with the power of six mythological gods after saying the word.

Shazam! does not have a release date and is eyeing a February start date in Toronto. The Lights Out and Annabelle: Creation director will step behind the camera with Peter Safran producing.

The film will be directed David F Sandberg, and also features Mark Strong and Grace Fulton. The film is being developed concurrently with a project focusing on Shazam! villain Black Adam starring Dwayne Johnson. Grazer is also known for his role on the recently-cancelled CBS sitcom Me, Myself, and I. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
