New Writers Aboard New Line’s Shazam!

‘Stax’ from IGN Filmforce alerted us they have a new update on the Shazam! adaptation.

According to reliable sources, the writing team of Joel Cohen & Alec Sokolow are the men for the job. They’re the duo behind Toy Story, Money Talks, Goodbye Lover and the forthcoming Cheaper by the Dozen and Garfield.
