Goyer, di Bonaventura adapting ‘The Breach’

Justin Rhodes will pen screenplay from Patrick Lee doomsday thriller

No strangers to tentpole properties, Lorenzo di Bonaventura and David Goyer are teaming up for the feature adaptation of the doomsday-thriller novel “The Breach.”

Project is being developed through Di Bonaventura Pictures and talks are under way to secure a studio distribution deal. Goyer is not attached to direct at this time, but that remains a possibility.

Justin Rhodes will pen the adaptation of the Patrick Lee book, in which an ex-cop races to prevent an artifact from bringing about an apocalypse. Screenplay is expected to diverge from the novel, and details of the adaptation were being kept under wraps.

Di Bonaventura will produce, as will Goyer in some capacity through his Phantom 4 Films banner. Nellie Stevens Reed will serve as co-producer.

David Ready will oversee the project for Di Bonaventura.

Di Bonaventura’s “Transformers” franchise has taken in more than $2.5 billion in worldwide grosses.

Goyer’s writing credits include “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Man of Steel” and Legendary’s “Godzilla” remake. He also wrote Activision’s “Call of Duty: Black Ops II” vidgame, which will be released next week.

The ICM Partners and Madhouse Entertainment-repped scribe Rhodes is on a bit of a roll, having also sold rights to his script “The Join” to Legendary.

Di Bonaventura is repped by CAA. Goyer is repped by WME.
