“The Hangover” director Todd Phillips is set to helm his first thriller, “Trust Your Eyes”, for Warner Bros. Pictures and his own Green Hat Films label says Variety.
Based on Linwood Barclay’s novel, the story follows a schizophrenic, map-obsessed savant who witnesses a murder online on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
He insists his older brother investigate. The pair soon cross paths with the killers – a politically connected ex-cop and his ice pick-wielding henchwoman.
At present it’s unsure where on his schedule the project will sit as he’s still attached to a remake of “The Gambler” and an adaptation of the Rolling Stone article “Arms and the Dudes”. Phillips is presently shooting the third film in “The Hangover” series.
