Akiva Goldsman, veteran Hollywood producer and screenwriter of the likes of Constantine, I Am Legend, Batman And Robin, and The Da Vinci Code, is working on a supernatural thriller with former Disney pin-up Zac Efrom, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Fallen is described as “an edgy thriller centering around an otherworldly being” and is being worked up by Goldsman’s own production company, and given his recent run of success as writer, director and consulting producer on Fringe for some of the show’s standout episodes, it’s well worth looking past the producer’s shaky track record on the big screen.

Fringe Season 4 is available on DVD for £30 and on Blu-ray for £37.99 from Amazon.co.uk.
