We often write about screenwriter David S. Goyer here on TGD, because the guy has always had major geek cred. He’s written scripts for the Christopher Nolan Batmans, Man of Steel, the Blade series, and recently he’s branched into game writing with Call of Duty 2: Black Ops.Now Variety reports that Goyer has signed a three-year deal with Warner Brothers, who are looking to keep Batman and Superman going with Batman Vs Superman. Goyer wrote the screenplay for B V S, and he also has a story credit on the upcoming Godzilla reboot, along with the long in the works Justice League film. (At least he has a credit for it on the Internet Movie Database.)
First up for Goyer is not a superhero adaptation, but a project that Deadline calls “an untitled Hitchcockian thriller with a grounded sci-fi element.” This project will be produced by Goyer’s company, Phantom Four, which will be under the Warner banner.
Warner Brothers has a lot of genre properties they want to get up and running, including the Batman / Superman team-up, and the JK Rowling project that’s set in the Harry Potter universe. Goyer certainly knows genre, and he should feel right at home at Warners for the next few years.
