After helping to pen the three Christopher Nolan Dark Knight films, as well as the new Man of Steel and Batman vs. Superman films, David S. Goyer is still going strong at Warner Bros and is quickly becoming one of the most recognizable screenwriters in Hollywood.
That streak of hit movies is something Warner Bros is counting on continuing as Goyer has reportedly signed a three picture deal with the studio which could include the chance at directing a sic-fi thriller.
Goyer’s deal with Warner Bros though doesn’t include comic book films as the three picture deal will be Goyer’s chance to prove he has the kind of knack for directing that he does for writing films. Previously, Goyer has helmed Blade: Trinity as well as The Unborn and The Invisible with none of the three offering much from Goyer in the director’s chair.
Still, he’s a clearly talented man and we can give him the benefit of the doubt that not all first films by directors are works of art. Under Goyer’s new deal with Warner Bros, he will be directing a sci-fi thriller “an untitled Hitchockian thriller with a grounded sci-fi element that Doug Jung is writing as a potential directing vehicle for Goyer.”
We will have to wait and see what Goyer’s films will look like but Warner Bros is betting on him outside of the DC universe he’s helped craft for the studio, and time will tell if that bet will indeed pay off.
