Spanish helmer Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) has made a deal with MGM to develop a film based on director Roger Corman’s 1963 pic X: The Man With the X-Ray Eyes, says Variety.
The original starred Ray Milland as a scientist who is near a breakthrough in X-ray vision technology when his funding is cut off. Desperate to show results, the doc applies eye drops that eventually cause him to lose control over his growing powers.
Mandeville Films partners David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will produce with Enrique Lopez Lavigne. Lou Arkoff will executive produce.
