Warner Plans to Adapt David Goyer’s Sci-Fi Trilogy


David Goyer’s upcoming science fiction novel Heaven’s Shadow has already been marked for film adaptation, according to a report at Deadline.

Goyer, best known for screenplays like Batman Begins and Blade as well as directorial efforts that include Blade: Trinity and The Unborn, plans to release his book in July of 2011 with two planned sequels, “Heaven’s War” and “Heaven’s Fall” to be released in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Warner Bros. has preemptively purchased the film rights and is eyeing the property as a potential franchise.

The series deals with an extraterrestrial object en route to Earth and the ensuing reaction on the part of mankind.

Goyer is next expected to complete Warner’s Superman reboot.
