Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Derf Backderf, My Friend Dahmer is the eerie and electrifying new film written and directed by Marc Meyers, with Disney star Ross Lynch in a revelatory performance as Jeffrey Dahmer. Before Dahmer became one of the most notorious serial killers of all time, he was a shy kid, a teenage alcoholic, and a goofball who never quite fit in with his classmates. This is the haunting, sad, funny, true, origin story of Dahmer in high school. Moderated by Abraham Riesman (staff culture writer at New York Magazine and Vulture), Lynch, Backderf, and Meyers and Alex Wolff (who plays young Derf) will discuss the joys and challenges of adapting this cult favorite for the big screen and the fascination with this infamous real-life figure. Attendees will also be treated to the first public teaser of the film exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con.
