The Breach

David Goyer is a busy fellow. He’s more or less the main man in charge of bringing DC Comics to the big screen; a sort of shadowy, unofficial Kevin Feige, if you will. And with that responsibility comes a hefty workload. Goyer’s had to churn out drafts of Batman vs. Superman, supervise the writing process for Joseph Gordon Levitt’s Sandman adaptation and executive produce Constantine for NBC.

Especially considering the latest project he has a hand in putting together is an adaptation of Patrick Lee’s epic end-of-the-world thriller, “The Breach,” a film that Goyer is producing alongside Transformers’ Lorenzo di Bonaventura. What exactly is The Breach going to be about? Well, if you’ve read the book you know, but for those of us ignorant on the subject, the studio seems to be giving the simple synopsis that it’s a story about, “an ex-cop who races to prevent an artifact from bringing about an apocalypse.” Sounds like bad stuff already, but the book’s Amazon description hints at an even larger scope. Its rundown of the novel’s plot reads:
