The ‘Shazam!’ star Adam Brody is now a hot property in Hollywood. But his story goes back to way before he came across the DC Comics hit. At the age of nineteen, Adam Brody decided to quit college and pursue a career in Hollywood. In 2000, the ‘Shazam!’ actor landed his first role as Barry Williams in the television film, ‘Growing Up Brady’. After playing a few minor roles, in 2003, the actor got his first break. He was cast as Seth Cohen in the drama series, ‘The O.C.’. He gave an outstanding performance and even improvised some of the comedic lines of his character with remarkable brilliance. His role soon transformed him into a teen idol. He was the first male ever to appear on the cover of Elle Girl magazine.
Brody appeared in ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ (2005) in a supporting role alongside Hollywood biggies like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. He has appeared in multiple movies ever since, like ‘Jennifer’s Body’ (2009), ‘Cop Out’ (2010), ‘Scream 4’ (2011), ‘Lovelace’ (2013), ‘Sleeping With Other People’ (2015), StartUp (2018), and of course, ‘Shazam!’ (2019). At this point you must be wondering what is the next Adam Brody movie or TV show? Well, here’s the list of upcoming Adam Brody films and TV shows scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Adam Brody movies would be as good as some of his recent ones.
2. Promising Young Woman (2020)
Adam Brody will star in the upcoming thriller ‘Promising Young Woman’. Contrary to what the title indicates, the film might hit you hard with its storyline.

In order to cope with trauma and deal with her psychological turmoil, she seeks vengeance, targeting every man she comes across.

He continues to solve trivial mysteries and occasionally gives in to alcohol and pangs of self-doubt. His life takes an unexpected turn when he is confronted with his first adult case. A 16-year-old disillusioned client (Sophie Nelisse) appoints him to investigate the brutal murder of her boyfriend. Will he be able to overcome his fits of self-doubt and prove to assert himself as a true detective? We have to watch the film to find out. Production for the film is set to start in September 2019.
