David S. Goyer has set up his next directorial effort, but it won’t be a DC Comics property and it won’t be at Warner Bros. Heat Vision reports that Goyer will helm an adaptation of the Patrick Lee novel The Breach for Lionsgate, which is an action-thriller that follows a former cop and ex-convict who stumbles across a crashed 747 and a mysterious artifact that will determine the fate of the future. Goyer has been developing this project for some time with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, but it now looks to be moving forward fairly quickly.
Goyer originated the take on Superman that resulted in Man of Steel and penned the screenplay for the film, and he’s been seen as the man steering some of WB’s DC Comics adaptations. He wrote the script for the untitled Man of Steel follow-up involving Batman and Superman, but the project recently enlisted Oscar-winning Argo scribe Chris Terrio to do further work on the script. Hit the jump for more on the project and Goyer’s current slate.
