Career[edit source | edit]
Beacham's first spec script Killing on Carnival Row was picked up by New Line Cinema in 2005. Characterized as "a dark neo-noir fantasy thriller," the project has alternately been in development with directors Guillermo del Toro and Neil Jordan.
In 2009, Beacham was reported to be working on the screenplay for the Disney remake of The Black Hole. Plot details of Beacham's script have been kept under wraps, but the new film is said to be more grounded in science. 
In 2010, Beacham's treatment for the science fiction film Pacific Rim was acquired by Legendary Pictures. The film, directed by Guillermo del Toro, features giant robots defending the world from an onslaught of giant monsters. Prior to the film's release in 2013, Beacham authored a graphic novel prequel titled Pacific Rim: Tales From Year Zero  with art by Sean Chen, Yvel Guichet, Pericles Junior, and Alex Ross.
Cable network AMC announced in April 2013 a science fiction crime drama from Beacham and director Joseph Kosinski called Ballistic City. Developed as a potential companion for The Walking Dead, the new series depicts "a former cop thrust into the criminal underworld of a city housed in a generational spaceship." Beacham is set to write the script and executive produce alongside Kosinski.
