Elm Street's Sam Bayer Attached To Direct Comic Book Adaptation Tumor

Joshua Hale Fialkov and Noel Tuazon’s Tumor tells the story of a detective suffering from a tumor in his brain that is causing him all sorts of problems. It seems to be pretty authentically hard-boiled stuff. Here’s the official blurb:

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.

According to Variety, Sam Bayer is attached to direct a feature film adaptation. Bayer’s last film – or, for that matter, his first film – was the Nightmare on Elm Street remake, and I can some the connective tissue between the two projects manifest in the promised hallucinations and distortions. Variety mention that Armstrong’s delusions are “time-bending”, and not having read the comic, I wasn’t quite sure what that might mean. It did make me question the bit in the blurb about “his final days”, though.

Here’s a video trailer for the comics, which will make an interesting point of comparison when (okay – if) a trailer for the movie rolls up:
