Screenwriter David Goyer (Batman, Blade films) is moving into the novel market with his first genre book Heaven's Shadow and yet he's still getting it to the silver screen. Deadline NY reports that Warner Bros. has grabbed the theatrical rights to his first science fiction novel, with the option to turn it into a possible trilogy franchise for the studio.
The first novel will hit book stores July 2011 with its sequels "Heaven's War" and "Heaven's Fall" set for 2012 and 2013 releases. Goyer is currently working on the next Superman revision for the studio.
While little specifics have been given for "Heaven's Shadow," the story is reported as centering on an extraterrestrial object en route to Earth and the ensuing reaction on the part of mankind.
