David Goyer to Direct Hacker Movie Remake ‘Who Am I’
David Goyer has been signed to direct “Who Am I,” a remake of the 2014 German thriller of the same name.

Goyer, best known for his work on the “Dark Knight” trilogy, is producing through his Phantom Four company along with Kevin Turen and Langley Park’s Kevin McCormick.

The original “Who Am I,” directed by Baran bo Odar, centered on a computer hacker group in Berlin that gears towards global fame. It was shot in Berlin and Rostock, starred Tom Schilling and Elyas M’Barek and screened in the Contemporary World Cinema section at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.

The remake is being written by Dan Wiedenhaupt, a former Atlas Entertainment exec who wrote “The Solutrean” for Studio 8.

David S. Goyer Taps Kevin Turen President As Superhero Vet Takes Indie Turn
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.

David Goyer Leaving FlashForward

David Goyer Leaving FlashForward
Things haven't been going as planned for FlashForward, ABC's Lost-replacement sci-fi drama that debuted last fall. Ratings have dropped steadily for the series since it launched, it lost Marc Guggenheim as its first showrunner in November (who was replaced by co-creator David Goyer), and then ABC decided to extend the show's hiatus until March to avoid January competition. Oh, and it's also sort of terrible. Now ABC has another reason to sweat --- Goyer has announced that he's stepping down as showrunner as well. The series still has five episodes to shoot of its remaining 23-episode season order, and it's not yet known who will be replacing Goyer. Goyer, who scripted the Blade films (and killed the franchise by directing Blade Trinity), also contributed to both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight. He's been pursuing a directorial career since 2002's ZigZag (he also directed The Unborn and The Invisible), but

Review: The Unborn

  • Cinematical
Any movie that begins with a dog wearing a human mask is in serious trouble. If it wants to use that kind of dream snippet as a launch pad for exploring a demented and increasingly bizarre world, if it wants to embrace a loony aesthetic and milk it for all it's worth, wonderful. Deliver a solid, jolting, dazzling, surprising thriller, and all will be forgiven.

On the other hand, if it desperately wants to be taken seriously, if it proceeds in a very measured and sober manner, if it becomes increasingly sedate as it calmly plods through tedious exposition, then you have a mess on your hands.

The Unborn looks like a ghost story, feels like a ghost story, and kinda sounds like a ghost story, but it's dead on arrival. Because writer/director David S. Goyer has been associated with a host of projects with which I have a natural affinity,

Goss the bad 'Man' opposite Jackson, Levy

Goss the bad 'Man' opposite Jackson, Levy
Luke Goss has been cast as the villain in the Samuel L. Jackson-Eugene Levy starrer The Man for New Line Cinema. Les Mayfield is directing, and Rob Fried and Bill Strauss are producing. The comedy sees bumbling salesman Levy stumble into an ATF sting. The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agent (Jackson) realizes he needs to take on the mild-mannered milquetoast as his ersatz partner in order to bring down the drug lord (Goss). Penned by Jim Piddick and Margaret Oberman and rewritten by Steve Carpenter, the project is budgeted in the mid-$20 million range and starts production April 17. Kent Alterman, Michele Weiss and Keith Goldberg are overseeing for the studio. The British actor is best known to American audiences for playing Nomak, the villain in New Line's Blade 2. He also appeared in David Goyer's indie feature ZigZag. He stars in indie film Charlie and recently wrapped the Michelle Yeoh actioner Silver Hawk. He next appears in the TNT miniseries Frankenstein as the title character. Goss is repped by Tom Chasin and DW Management's David Wood and Shirley Lewis.
