Annabelle: Creation star joining Shazam! cast
A cast member from David Sandberg's last project is making the leap into the DC Cinematic Universe right along with him, according to a report by Variety.
According to the report, Grace Fulton is in talks to play a friend of Billy Batson, the childhood true form of the grown-up superhero known as Shazam.
Fulton previously appeared in Shazam! director David Sandberg's previous movie, the horror film Annabelle: Creation, which was her most high-profile role to date, having earned more than $300 million worldwide since its release in August.
In addition to Annabelle: Creation, Fulton has previously been seen on the TV series Revenge, Ghost Whisperer, and Awkward. She's also currently filming a project called Vampire Dad, which is slated for release in 2018.
Shazam! is set to start filming in February 2018, with a script by Henry Gayden and Darren Lemke and a release date eyed sometime the following year. In addition to Sandberg's movie, Flashpoint, Batgirl, and Suicide Squad 2 are also in various stages of production in the DC Cinematic Universe.
The next movie in the series, Justice League, will be released in the US on November 17.
