Exclusive: Through his work on the Dark Knight, Blade and Ghost Rider series, David S. Goyer has spent more than his share of time in the superhero trenches. At a time when studios are betting bigger than ever on spandex, Goyer is evolving his film and TV production company Phantom Four in the direction they are avoiding. He’s hired as president Kevin Turen, whose background has been with indie films like A Guide To Recognizing Your Saints, Arbitrage, the Robert Redford-starrer All Is Lost and most recently the Toronto film 99 Homes. While Goyer’s got plenty of mainstream projects through his film deal with Warner Bros and TV deal with Universal Television, he wants to devote his resources to empowering makers of the kind of films that are being honored tonight at the Gotham Awards. That includes raising a fund.

Nerds, for better or worse, should probably worship at the altar of David Goyer. The guy kickstarted the comic book movie boom and rescued Marvel from financial insolvency by penning the Blade series. Then Warner Bros. recruited him to help re-invent Batman with Christopher Nolan. The WB also kept him on for Man Of Steel, and now Goyer is providing the blueprint for their entire comic-inspired shared universe. It.s that sort of far-reaching influence that makes you forget some of the not-that-interesting credits on his resume. Just start with his TV producing credits for Freakylinks and FlashForward and work your way out from there. Nonetheless, his name was strong enough to start a bidding war for his latest project, and Lionsgate is the victor. As per THR, Goyer is directing The Breach, an adaptation of a Patrick Lee novel being written by Justin Rhodes (Grassroots). Big shot producer Lorenzo »
While David S. Goyer certainly has his hands full working on the delayed production of Batman vs. Superman (which just gained Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor), he's also looking to get back behind the camera again. After helming Blade Trinity, The Unborn and The Invisible, THR has word that Goyer is attached to direct The Breach, a new sci-fi action thriller produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura (of Transformers) that Lionsgate just picked up in a bidding war with other studios. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Patrick Lee, and has drawn comparisons to "24" and "The X-Files." More below! Justin Rhodes (Grassroots, Contract Killers) will adapt the book which follows corrupt ex-cop who is trying to get his life back in order when he discovers a crashed plane in the Alaska wilderness. But among the wreckage is the First Lady and evidence of a mysterious missing item. »

He and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (Transformers) teamed up for the adaptation when the news first hit, and now THR reports that the duo took the package to studios last week, with Lionsgate winning the rights in a deal late on Friday night.
Goyer’s adaptation of The Breach had had interest from Warner Bros., Fox, Relativity, and Millennium, but it’s believed that it was Lionsgate’s strong enthusiasm to fast-track the project that was the deciding factor.
Initially, there had been a question over whether Goyer would be directing as well as producing, and now it looks like that he will indeed be going behind the camera, keen to return to the director’s chair for his first film since 2009’s The Unborn.

Over the weekend, I read a great article on Forbes that outlined how Warner Bros is seemingly trying to put a little bit of distance between themselves and the Nolan/Goyer tandem that created their last 4 big DC properties. Now THR is adding fuel to that fire with its report that David Goyer has signed on to direct The Breach for Lionsgate.
Why do these two items seemingly relate to each other? Because with the intense production schedule that the untitled Batman/Superman project and Justice League are heading into these next two years, it says something that Goyer is going to be able to find the time to prep, shoot, and finish off production on a completely separate project for another studio- if he’s going to be as involved as everyone initially thought he was with WB/DC’s upcoming slate.
