DC's Captain Marvel gets Smart director

captainmarvelVariety reports that Get Smart director Peter Segal has gotten the nod to work on the Shazam!-saying Captain Marvel again as part of a three-year, first-look deal that Segal and his Callahan Filmworks production partner Michael Ewing signed with Warner Bros. It seems that both he and Ewing worked on the film two years ago when it was at New Line, and now they get to take a crack at it and John August’s (both Charlie’s Angels movies) script again.

The other initial story idea that is a part of this deal is Liam McBain: International Tennis Star and Proper English Geezer—which sounds like Talladega Nights, but in England—written by rookie Chip Hall, whose production credits include four episodes of “King of the Hill.”

This may not be the “more news” that Gordon was hoping for back in August, but it’s a start.
