David S. Goyer / The Breach

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. Armed with superior firepower and the instincts and savvy of a good cop, Travis tracks down the murderers, which just leads to more intrigue, secrets and conspiracies. Goyer hasn't directed the best films, but maybe with a good script, he might have something decent on his hands here. The Breach is also the first in a three-book series, so we could have a new sci-fi franchise here. Interested?

Goyer is a much better writer than director/producer.
