Ibid Filmworks has picked up the film rights to John "Derf" Backderf's disturbing graphic novel MY FRIEND DAHMER. Set in 1970s suburbia, the story follows infamous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer from age 12, when he was a shy, bespectacled kid, right up to the day he kills his first victim two weeks after high school graduation.

The graphic novel was told through the perspective of his then-friend Backderf who is now a political cartoonist who has been twice nominated for an Eisner Award and won the Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award for his political cartoons. The project isn't being pegged as a horror or thriller, rather a "coming-of-age tale of teenagers teetering on the abyss". Adam Goldworm, Marc Meyers and Jody Girgenti will produce. Jeremy Renner played the killer in 2002's indie DAHMER.

On the NEWS page is the first photo from the upcoming film MY FRIEND DAHMER, adapting the comic of that same name by cartoonist Derf Backderf, who actually grew up as a childhood friend of the famous serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. The photo shows actor Ross Lynch, formerly of Disney Channel series Austin & Ally and Disney made-for-TV movie series Teen Beach Movie, looking less like a teen heartthrob and more "hauntingly similar" to the actual teenage Dahmer, according to statements relayed from Beckderf and other childhood friends of the killer by director Marc Meyers.

I studied dahmer. He wasn't gay. He shy, lonely, awkward and pathetic.
And most of all a heavy drinker

But the 2002 film was a depression trip. No need for this

Gay or not don't make you a serial killer.

Before Jeffrey Dahmer became a notorious serial killer, he was a shy, alcoholic teen who never quite fit in. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Derf Backderf, this is the true, haunting story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school.

Based on the acclaimed graphic novel about one of the most notorious serial killers ever. Its screenplay landed a spot on the coveted 'Black List', ranking it as one of the best un-produced screenplays (at the time) before becoming a hit movie. MY FRIEND DAHMER is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on April 10th.
