In the latest in a series of comments from Shazam! director David Sandberg, the filmmaker best known for Lights Out and Annabelle is excited to be working on a movie that allows him to explore a more light-hearted world.
Sandberg, who hails from Sweden, hasn't had an American movie yet that wasn't a scare-fest -- and with the recent comments taht Shazam! will be the most light-hearted DC movie yet, he can't wait to do something a little less dark.

"But it's something that I look forward to trying out, even though I plan to return to horror in some fashion. My background, back in Sweden, before I started doing horror shorts, I was doing animated comedy shorts. It's not totally alien to me to have more of a comedy approach. I look forward to taking that on in a feature."
