Cinemystery: Production Update on Adaptation of Linwood Barclay's Trust Your Eyes

Cinemystery: Crime Novels Adapted for Film

A couple of months ago we reported that Linwood Barclay's stand-alone thriller Trust Your Eyes had been optioned by Warner Bros. for film.

Now we're learning that Halo: Reach writer Peter O'Brien will pen the screenplay for Todd Phillips to direct.

The publisher calls the book "a thrilling story in which two brothers suddenly find themselves pulled into a frightening vortex of power and murder", a storyline that some reviewers have called an updated twist on Hitchcock's classic film Rear Window, itself based on the 1942 short story "It Had To Be Murder" by Cornell Woolrich. Learn more about the book, below.

Thomas's brother, Ray, takes care of him, cooking for him, dealing with the outside world on his behalf, and listening to his intricate and increasingly paranoid theories. When Thomas tells Ray what he has seen, Ray humors him with a half-hearted investigation. But Ray soon realizes he and his brother have stumbled onto a deadly conspiracy.

And now they are in the crosshairs …
