Goyer is possessed

Nov. 9, 2007by:

David Goyer is a talented writer who hasn't had much luck translating those writing skills into directing success. Neither BLADE: TRINITY nor THE INVISIBLE were very well received critically or commercially. That said, I think the guy has got the talent, he just needs to put it all together. To save the day, in comes Michael Bay. The uber-director has signed Goyer to direct an untitled thriller about a young girl who's possessed. The film, which Goyer also wrote, follows an 18-year-old girl who realizes she has been possessed and she begins to fight back. Filming on UPTFMB ("Untitled Possession Thriller For Michael Bay") is scheduled to begin in February and it's unclear what this means for MAGNETO. Goyer was scheduled to direct the X-MEN spinoff for Fox but UPTFMB could push MAGNETO back or take Goyer off the project. While Goyer didn't write the script for THE DARK KNIGHT, he was involved in the story and also worked on Doug Liman's JUMPER, which hits theaters in February.

Extra Tidbit: Personally I couldn't care less if they ever make a Magneto standalone movie.

I'd be up for a stand alone Magneto movie if it somehow adapts Avalon's storyline or Genova's.

In other words: with Magneto as leader of outcast mutants (like Xavier) but instead of trying to blend them with the rest of the humans he tries to create a separate "world" for them

Possession thriller + Michael Bay + David Goyer = No thanks. Goyer's got potential, but potential never got anyone very far, did it? And Bay should stick to action.

I Agree

A Magneto Standalone movie... who cares? Maybe if it was a sequel instead of prequel, I'd be more interested. Wolverine prequel, that's another story. I'm really looking forward to that.

Funny story, I met David Goyer very briefly at the after party for the premier of Blade Trinity. I shook his hand and told him I liked the movie. And he was really appreciative, too. Real nice guy.

For the record, David, I lied to you.
WORST MOVIE EVER
