Sam Bayer Attached to Direct Tumor

Variety reports that new production company Red Crown have attached Sam Bayer (A Nightmare on Elm Street) to direct an adaptation of the graphic novel Tumor, created by Joshua Hale Fialkov and Noel Tuazon.

In Tumor, Frank Armstrong has an inoperable brain tumor that’s killing him. In his final days, with his body, senses, and mind failing him, he’s going to do the one thing that he’s never been able to do before… save the girl.

Based on the Amazon Kindle title, the film will be produced by Barry Josephson (Life As We Know It).
