It may sound like a bit of an odd mix, but don't those produce the greatest results? According to Variety, Warner Bros. has enlisted The Hangover writer/director Todd Phillips to direct their upcoming thriller Trust Your Eyes, based on the book of the same name by Linwood Barclay. It will be his first thriller for the studio - or not, if you count this as one.

The book is described as a "cross between Rear Window and Rain Main, and follows "a schizophrenic, map-obsessed savant who witnesses a murder online on Manhattan's Lower East Side...he insists that his older brother investigate, and the siblings cross paths with a politically connected ex-cop and his ice pick-wielding henchwoman."
