David S. Goyer and Lorenzo di Bonaventure Developing Doomsday-Thriller THE BREACH

     November 9, 2012


Heavy-hitters David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers) are teaming up for the doomsday-thriller, The Breach.  Adapted from the Patrick Lee novel by Justin Rhodes, The Breach follows Travis Chase, a former cop and ex-convict who stumbles across a crashed 747 and a mysterious artifact that will determine the fate of the future.  The screenplay is expected to divert from novel somewhat, but details are being kept under wraps.  Goyer has not signed on to direct the picture, but the possibility is there for him.  Hit the jump for more.

Variety reported patrick-lee-the-breach-book-coveron the development of The Breach by producers Goyer and di Bonaventura.  Here’s the description from the novel (via Amazon):

Thirty years ago, in a facility buried beneath a vast Wyoming emptiness, an experiment gone awry accidentally opened a door.

It is the world’s best-kept secret—and its most terrifying.

Trying to regain his life in the Alaskan wilds, ex-con/ex-cop Travis Chase stumbles upon an impossible scene: a crashed 747 passenger jet filled with the murdered dead, including the wife of the President of the United States. Though a nightmare of monumental proportions, it pales before the terror to come, as Chase is dragged into a battle for the future that revolves around an amazing artifact.

Allied with a beautiful covert operative whose life he saved, Chase must now play the role he’s been destined for—a pawn of incomprehensible forces or humankind’s final hope—as the race toward Apocalypse begins in earnest.

Because something is loose in the world.

And doomsday is not only possible . . . it is inevitable.
