'Super' hero for Goyer, Warners
EmptyDavid Goyer, who said in February that he was no longer involved in Warner Bros. Pictures' upcoming "The Flash," is jumping back into the DC Comics universe for Warners with a new project titled "Super Max."
The film, which Goyer revealed Saturday on the WizardUniverse.com site, will be built around the Green Arrow, who is tossed into a maximum-security prison for supervillains when he is wrongly convicted of a crime.
Goyer and his wife, Jessika Borsiczky Goyer, are attached to produce. No director is yet on board. Lynn Harris will oversee for the studio.
The project is based on an original idea by Justin Marks, who is writing the screenplay.
Within 10 minutes of entering the prison, the Green Arrow will be stripped of his identity, Goyer told the site. "They shave his goatee, and they take his costume and send him to prison for life, and he has to escape. It's like 'Alcatraz,' and he has to team up with, in some cases, some of the very same villains he is responsible for incarcerating in order to get out and clear his name. Of course, tons of people try to kill him while he's in there. We've populated the prison with all sorts of B and C villains from the DC Universe."
Goyer, who co-wrote Warners' "Batman Begins," has directed "The Invisible," which Buena Vista is releasing April 27. Producer Jessika Borsiczky Goyer's upcoming projects include Dimension Films' "Quebec" and 20th Century Fox's "Asylum." The Goyers are repped by CAA.
Marks is writing "Voltron" for producer Mark Gordon and "Street Fighter," based on the Capcom video game for producer Ashok Amritraj's Hyde Park Entertainment. He is repped by WMA, Adam Kolbrenner at Madhouse Entertainment and attorneys Stephen Clark and Melissa Rogal at Lichter Grossman.
