A confluence of creepy talents are coming together for a new sci-fi action thrillerfrom Fox Studios and Boom! Studios. Fox recently partnered with the creator-driven comic book publisher, giving Boom! a "significant minority stake." And now they're putting the pieces together to start their first feature film.
Malignant is based on a 2012 graphic novel called Malignant Man, co-created by famed writer/director James Wan (Saw, The Conjuring), who is producing on this one. The story follows a terminally ill patient who discovers that his malignant tumor is actually a parasitic alien.
Here's the official synopsis:
"Alan Gates, a cancer patient with a terminal diagnosis, is resigned to his fate... until he discovers that his tumor is actually a mysterious parasite! Granted a second lease on life and incredible, otherworldly powers, Alan must fight against an evil army buried beneath society's skin, all the while unlocking the secrets of his forgotten past."
