4. David S. Goyer Is Writing It
Every time you go to a Halloween party and see fourteen different idiots all wearing the same Heath Ledger-Joker costume, David S. Goyer is the man to blame. This is the guy that co-wrote Batman Begins, The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, and now hes on board for Black Ops II. That means we can expect big action, sharp dialogue and gravelly voices. Hes not the first Hollywood screenwriter to take a swing at Call of Duty - Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace writer Paul Haggis was behind the script for last years Modern Warfare 3, which unfortunately ended up more incomprehensible and hammy than a gammon labyrinth. Goyers got the goods. Having reinvented the most ailing franchise in comic books, hes the perfect guy to relaunch Call of Duty as a fresh, futuristic first-person shooter. And with his penchant for blockbuster set-pieces, David S. Goyer is set to make the next CoD the most spectacular yet. Hes currently the only big name attached to the project, but its expected that plenty of A-listers will be lending their diaphragms to Black Ops II. Sam Worthington, Idris Elba, Timothy Olyphant and Gary Oldman have all popped up in the past so its exciting to see who Goyer will get to work with. Christian Bale anyone?
