Director: James Wan

Writer: Zak Olkewicz

Release Date: TBA


James Wan is gearing up for his next film, “Malignant Man”. After his newly released Mystery-Thriller “The Conjuring 2”, the second installment to “The Conjuring”, which was an instant success, grossing over $40,000,000 opening weekend, he is on to the next project. “Malignant Man”, based on a Boom! Studios comic, created by James Wan and Michael Alan Nelson, is sure to be another box-topping hit.

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.

James Wan (working under Atomic Monster label) and Brad Peyton (“San Andreas”) will be teaming up to bring “Malignant Man” from the comic pages to the big screen. The rest of the production team includes:

“Malignant Man”

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 with some incredible powers and a renewed purpose, Gates is tasked with fighting a secret army lurking behind the veils of society while also peeling back his own secrets. james wan brad peyton malignant man“Malignant Man TPB” was originally created by James Wan, co-written by Michael Alan Nelson, and illustrated by Piotr Kowalski. The cover art is by Trevor Hairsine. I’m hoping to see James Wan adapt this film as an animation to compliment the comic. It’s not too often we see good animated films in the horror genre, and I am interested to see how this would play out. James Wan is a Master of Horror and Brad Peyton is an Action icon. The minds together could transform “Malignant Man” into a groundbreaking, animated, Action-packed Thriller.
