The Dark Knight Writer Takes On The Unborn

quoted from First Showing:

“David Goyer is certainly sitting pretty right about now. Having served as one-third of the writing team for the immensely successful The Dark Knight, the scribe is already talking about future projects, namely his next directorial effort The Unborn, which is scheduled for 2009. Goyer spoke at length to MTV about the “old-school horror movie” based on an apparition the likes of the dybbuk (from Jewish folklore). The story has themes reminiscent of Goyer’s second directing effort, 2007’s The Invisible, in that Unborn also surrounds a wandering spirit; but this time it’s one that’s far more malevolent, and which tries to inhabit a body in order to be reborn. Goyer also revealed that beyond proper creepiness and scares, he intends to explain very little of the spirit, similarly to how the Joker was presented in Dark Knight.

“It’s one of the things that I think help makes things scary,” Goyer said of being coy with the ghost’s origins. “We actually don’t know where it really came from. The first thing it inhabits is a young child but it kind of hops bodies throughout the movie. If we’re fortunate enough to do a sequel I would delve back even further because we don’t say were it really originated from.” I’m be on board with the concept, though I do sit skeptical considering the talk of a sequel already, and material for which we have to wait. Let’s hope he doesn’t hold that much back.”
