The Hangover director Todd Phillips is getting serious about branching out. After primarily helming comedies for most of his career, Phillips recently attached himself to a remake of the crime drama The Gambler. Now Variety reports that Phillips is set to direct and produce an adaptation of Linwood Barclay’s thriller novel Trust Your Eyes for Warner Bros., with Dan Lin also onboard as a producer. In the vein of Rear Window, the story centers on a map-obsessed schizophrenic who witnesses a murder in New York City via a GoogleMaps-like program on his computer and tries to convince his older brother to investigate. The two cross paths with a politically-connected ex-cop and soon realize that they’ve stumbled onto a deadly conspiracy.
This does sound it would be a good thriller suspense story so we'll have to wait and see what happens and who ends up in the cast and all.
