THR reports that Goyer will sit in the director’s chair but will not be writing the movie about “a corrupt ex-cop who is trying to get his life back in order when he discovers a crashed plane in the Alaskan 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.”
Even if he’s not scripting the adaptation, this is another film on Goyer’s very full plate which already includes Man of Steel 2/Batman Vs Superman, Da Vinci’s Demons, the Constantine TV show and The Sandman.
Goyer’s track record as a director is not a particularly illustrious one, having helmed Blade Trinity, The Unborn, and The Invisible. Fingers crossed that this is a step up.
