EXCLUSIVE: David Linde’s Lava Bear has made a deal to develop an untitled feature based on an original idea by David S. Goyer. Lava Bear will produce the supernatural thriller along with Goyer. They will put a writer on it shortly. Goyer scripted the upcoming Superman: Man of Steel for Warner Bros, and Godzilla for Legendary Pictures. After co-writing Batman Begins with Chris Nolan, he co-wrote the story for both The Dark Knight and the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises, and Marvel’s Blade films and Ghost Rider. He previously worked with Linde while the latter was Universal Pictures co-chairman and Goyer directed the supernatural thriller The Unborn for Rogue Pictures. Lava Bear president Tory Metzger will oversee the project.
Lava Bear is currently developing films that include the Gil Kenan-directed A Giant, an untitled thriller from writer L.D. Goffigan, and the David Michod-directed The Rover. Goyer is represented by WME.
