First Look Studios has picked up the rights to the drama, Special at the Cannes Film Festival.

The film stars Michael Rapaport as a comic book-loving meter maid who finds he has developed extraordinary superpowers, notes The Hollywood Reporter. Rapaport's ordinary Joe takes a mind-altering drug that sends him into a world of defying gravity, reading people's minds and walking through walls.

Special is the directorial debut of Hal Haberman and Jeremy Passmore, who also wrote the film; look for it in theaters later this year.
