David Goyer

David S. Goyer is Directing The Breach. David S. Goyer’s book option and Lionsgate’s deal answers the question who would shepherd The Breach book to film adaptation to the big screen. The Breach will be based Patrick Lee‘s novel of the same name.

On the people behind the scenes of The Breach:

Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing with Justin Rhodes writing the script for the sci-fi action thriller…Nellie Stevens Reed of Phantom 4, Goyer’s production banner, will co-produce…Lionsgate’s president of production Erik Feig and Geoff Shaevitz, Summit Entertainment’s president of production, will oversee the project for the studio.

The description of the novel The Breach:

Lee’s debut thriller pits ex-con ex-cop Travis Chase against increasingly dire odds as the action ratchets up like levels in a complex video game. Fresh out of prison, Travis sets out on a solo Alaskan trek, wanting nothing more than quiet time for introspection. Then he encounters a downed plane containing the dead bodies of the United States’s first lady and several others, plus hints about a mysterious missing item. Armed with superior firepower and the instincts and savvy of a good cop, Travis tracks down the murderers, who are torturing hostage Paige Campbell to get her father, Peter, to reveal another clue. Travis manages to rescue Paige just as Peter confesses the information and is killed. His last words send Paige and Travis into a dangerous world of secrets and conspiracies, where they slowly learn about the eponymous Breach and meet progressively more menacing foes. It’s all here: brilliantly devious enemies; nifty, innovative gadgets and weaponry; hang-on-to-your-hat action; and razor-sharp plot twists aplenty.
