[Movies] David Goyer To Direct The Breach Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.03.2014
According to The Hollywood Reporter reports that David Goyer will direct The Breach for Lionsgate. Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce. Justin Rhodes wrote the script for the sci-fi action thriller based on the 2009 novel by Patrick Lee.
Here's a synopsis: 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.
The film was put together late last year when Goyer optioned the book and developed it with di Bonaventure independently. Lionsgate acquired it after some interest from Warner Bros, Fox, Relativity and Millennium. Lionsgate showed intent to fast-track the project. Breach is the first of a three novel series, followed by Ghost Country and Deep Sky. Nellie Stevens-Reed of Phantom 4, Goyer's production banner, will co-produce.
