Becca Thomas of Stranger Things fame, is slated to direct Malignant, a sci-fi action-thriller that James Wan is producing for 20th Century Fox. For Thomas, Malignant is the latest in a series of exciting projects to come the director’s way.
Malignant is actually based on a Boom! Studios comic titled Malignant Man that Wan co-created. Zak Olkewicz, Lights Out co-producer, wrote the script for the adaptation.
The story focuses on Alex Gates, a patient dying of a terminal disease who is resigned to his fate … until it’s discovered that his malignant tumor is actually a mysterious alien parasite. The terminally-ill cancer patient finds new purpose and abilities granted to him by the alien parasite he once mistook for a malignant tumor. With his incredible powers and renewed purpose, Gates is tasked with fighting a secret army lurking behind the veils of society.
