Although he is working tirelessly on the revived Fast & Furious 7, director James Wan is already looking to his future plans, which may include producing and directing his own graphic novel for 20th Century Fox. Deadline recently reported that Fox bought the rights to Wan’s graphic novel Malignant Man and, if all goes well, will have Wan producing and directing the project. The novel follows a cancer patient (Alan Gates) who learns that his once-terminal cancer tumor is actually giving him superpowers and allows him to become a crime-fighting superhero, so it’s an interesting combination of DC Comics meets Phenomenon. Fast & Furious 7 is still in the filming process after a delayed production following Paul Walker’s death last year, so we don’t really know when Malignant Man will really get rolling, but probably sometime in the next two years. Fast & Furious 7 is scheduled for release in 2015.
