David Goyer to Direct "Magneto"

by | April 27, 2007 | Comments

He’s had his hand in a whole bunch of superhero flicks, and you can now add another one on to the filmography of writer/director David S. Goyer. He’ll be directing and (re-)writing the "Magneto" flick for Fox.

The first draft came from "Longest Yard" screenwriter Sheldon Turner, but I guess that’s what happens when a director who’s also a writer is brought on board. Looks like producers won’t be needing Ian McKellen‘s services, since "Magneto" will focus on the eventual villain as a 20-something. Apparently we’ll also get a good dose of a youthful Professor Xavier as well.

Both "Magneto" and "Wolverine" (from a screenplay by David Benioff, no director announced yet) are set to begin production later this year – -a year that’s bound to prove pretty profitable for Marvel in general. ("Ghost Rider" already made some solid coin; "Spider-Man 3" is about to explode; and something tells me "Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer" is gonna be a big hit, too.)

David Goyer’s previous screenplays include "Batman Begins" and the whole "Blade" series. He even directed the third one. Plus I think he’s still got that "Flash" project on the back burner…
