Exclusive: David Goyer reveals MAGNETO and INVISIBLE MAN Info

     December 11, 2008

Written by Steve ‘Frosty’ Weintraub

Today was the Los Angeles press day for David Goyer’s new movie “The Unborn”. Since the movie doesn’t come out till January, I’ll be holding back my full interview till closer to release. But that doesn’t mean I won’t tease you with some new info on “Magneto” and “Invisible Man”.

In case you didn’t know, David Goyer has written a script for Magneto – the character you all know and love from “The X-Men”. While rumors were flying that’d be his next directing gig, he tells me that 20th Century Fox is waiting to see how “Wolverine” does next summer before they decide whether or not to move ahead with the project. He also tells me the movie takes place in 1961 and it shows Professor X (Charles) and Magneto (Eric) as best friends and they team up against another person in the movie.

The other bit of news was about the project he’ll be directing next – “Invisible Man”.

If you watch the interview below, at the end he talks about the film. He says the character is the nephew of the original Invisible Man and he perfects the ability. After perfecting it, he’s captured by Scotland Yard and he can either work for them or be dissected.

As I said, in the coming weeks expect a big interview with David…but until then…here are his comments on “Wolverine” and “Invisible Man”.
