Warner Bros. has picked up the film rights to a planned trilogy of sci-fi novels written by David Goyer (Batman Begins, the upcoming Superman: The Man of Steel) and Michael Cassutt. Goyer will also adapt the first book in the trilogy, Heaven’s Shadow. The book, which will hit shelves in July 2011, “begins when an object is discovered heading for earth. Initial panic gives way to a competition between governments to be first to intercept what they believe is a breakaway meteor. What the astronauts discover leads to an encounter with alien forces that are a threat to humanity.” Oh, aliens. Why do you find us so threaten-able?
According to Deadline, the following books in the series Heaven’s War and Heaven’s Fall, will be released in subsequent summers. Obviously, since the prose isn’t finished, Warner Bros. bought the trilogy on a pitch from Goyer. The studio clearly likes his stuff since they’re already trusting him to help reboot the Superman franchise, which is being “godfathered” by Christopher Nolan.
