David Goyer to Direct Sci-Fi Thriller THE BREACH
Lionsgate recently picked up the rights to a new sci-fi thriller called The Breach, and Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel scribe David Goyer is attached to direct it. Goyer also directed the films Blade: Trinity and The Unborn, both of which were mediocre movies. Hopefully he does better with this one. The film is based on a book that he optioned last year, and since then he's been developing it independently.
The story centers "on a corrupt ex-cop who is trying to get his life back in order when he discovers a crashed plane in the Alaska wilderness. The first lady is among those dead in the wreckage. That sets off an adventure featuring a beautiful survivor, assassins, a secret organization, alien technology and an end-of-the-world scenario."
That sure sounds like it has the makings of an interesting, cool movie. Breach is the first in a trilogy of books. The next book in the trilogy is Ghost Country, which will be followed by Deep Sky. I imagine that if the first movie does well, we will see those other books adapted into movies as well.
The project seems to have a lot of potential. I hope that he can can pull it off and give us a movie that we'll enjoy.
