Although there are a few dud notes in his repertoire, David S Goyer has a genuinely impressive track record. He wrote the first two Blade films, co-scripted Batman Begins and co-wrote the story for The Dark Knight and the upcoming Rises. He also helped to create TV sci-fi series Threshold and Flash Forward and has scripted the Superman reboot, Man of Steel.

Accordingly, any new project of his should be accorded some measure of eager anticipation, including mooted new graphic novel adaptation, 100 Bullets. 100 Bullets is a DC property that spanned 1999 to 2009, about an Agent Graves, who sets out to bring down a nefarious multi-national organisation called The Trust. Apparently it is a sprawling crime saga and a well-loved graphic novel series.

Although Flash Forward hit the buffers pretty hard and never moved on to a second season, it was nonetheless a promising premise, as was that of Threshold and it clearly shows that Goyer can work as comfortably in an episodic format as on the big screen. Frankly, TV could really do with this dark, noirish story of crime and punishment, with Warner Bros TV apparently producing the show for it to screen on US channel Showtime. One would assume it will find its way to the UK in due course, perhaps on Sky’s newly christened Atlantic channel.

We’ll let you know as soon as any of these intriguing rumours coalesce into something solid.

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
