“San Andreas” director Brad Peyton has come aboard to helm the sci-fi/action feature “Malignant Man” which James Wan is set to produce for 20th Century Fox.
An adaptation of the Boom! Studios comic, the story focuses on Alex Gates – a patient dying of a terminal disease who is resigned to his fate… until he discovers that his malignant tumor is actually a mysterious alien parasite.
Now armed with incredible powers and a renewed purpose, he is tasked with fighting a secret army lurking behind the veils of society. Zak Olkewicz is adapting the script while Peyton, Ross Richie and Stephen Christy will also produce.
