I predict a black future for you
I forecast a black future for you

I predict a bleak future for you
I forecast a bleak future for you

I predict a gloomy future for you
I forecast a gloomy future for you

(I prefer the second one)

Can you think of other verbs following this structure? Or a rule by which we have to apply it.?

I don't quite understand the question. Most transitive verbs follow that construction: Subject + verb + direct object (+ indirect object)

I gave my hat to you
I see a nice future for you

Although verbs of wishing have
I wish you a merry christmas

where (to) you is an indirect object
