Phantom Four, which Goyer runs with Levine, is currently in post-production on the horror-thriller Antlers for Fox Searchlight with Scott Cooper directing and Guillermo del Toro producing. Next up for Goyer is Deeper at MGM with Baltasar Kormakur directing as well as season two of Syfy’s Krypton, and the first season of Issac Asimov’s Foundation for Apple.
