“Batman Begins” co-writer David Goyer has partnered with Bently Tittle and Pascale Faubert to option “The Fall,” a graphic novel by Ed Brubaker and Jason Lutes.
Written by Brubaker and illustrated by Lutes, “The Fall” is a modern-noir story of a luckless clerk who gets caught up in an unsolved murder case when he finds a mislaid credit card.
Brubaker will write the pic. Goyer produces with Tittle and Faubert.
Goyer most recently wrote, directed and produced “Blade: Trinity” for New Line Cinema. With David Heyman (the “Harry Potter” pics) and Bragi Schut, Goyer also is an executive producer for a CBS series tentatively titled “Threshold.”
Faubert served as an executive producer on “Total Eclipse,” directed by Agnieszka Holland and starring Leonardo DiCaprio. Faubert also worked closely with Tony Kaye (“American History X”) as his development VP.
Tittle is a feature, video and commercials helmer. He also developed and directed interactive series for Web portal Z.com, including Oliver Stone’s “A Child’s Night Dream.”
Brubaker’s graphic novel and comicbook credits include “A Complete Lowlife,” “Scene of the Crime” and “Sleeper.” He is currently penning “Captain America,” his debut project as an exclusive writer for Marvel Comics.
Lutes has written and illustrated comics and graphic novels including “Jar of Fools” and “Berlin: City of Stones,” which Time listed as one of the top 10 comics of 2000.
