Movie News: Zachary Levi to Star in 'Shazam!'

Thor: The Dark World

Shazam!: Zachary Levi, who made a brief appearance in Thor: The Dark World (above) but is probably best known for starring in the action-comedy TV series Chuck as a secret agent, will star in DC's Shazam! David F. Sandberg (Annabelle: Creation) will direct the action-adventure, which follows a boy who can transform into a superhero by uttering a single word. The actor expressed his reaction on social media (below). [THR]

 

Spectre

Bond 25: Soon after Christoph Waltz portrayed the sinister villain Blofeld in Spectre (above), the actor said he was willing to reprise his role for two more James Bond spy adventures, but only if Daniel Craig returned as 007. Craig's return for the 25th Bond movie has now been confirmed, so will Waltz also be returning? “No, I’m sorry," he now says. "I’m really sad, but that’s the tradition, that there is a new…name. Sorry. I would’ve liked to.” [Talky Movie via Slashfilm]

 

Get Out

The Perfection: Allison Williams, who established herself on HBO's Girls before making a notable costarring appearance in this year's horror hit Get Out (above), will star in The Perfection. It's described as a horror-thriller about "two cello prodigies and a sinister obsession." Richard Shepard, who helmed several episodes of Girls, cowrote the script and will direct. [Deadline]
