Image Entertainment To Distribute “Odd Thomas” Adaptation

September 25, 2013

Image Entertainment announced that they have acquired all U.S. rights to the thriller ODD THOMAS, based on the novel by Dean Koontz. The novel is the first in a series of seven books, six of which have already been released and have sold a total of over 20 million copies worldwide.

The film was written and directed by Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra) and stars Anton Yelchin (Star Trek Into Darkness, Fright Night), Willem Dafoe (Spider-Man, Platoon) and Addison Timlin (Californication, Zero Hour).

The film tells the story of a short-order cook with clairvoyant abilities. Maybe he has a gift, maybe it’s a curse, Odd has never been sure, but he tries to do his best by the silent souls who seek him out. Sometimes they want justice and he finds himself helping police solve a crime. Occasionally, they prevent one. One day, however, a mysterious man comes to town with a filing cabinet stuffed with information on the world’s worst killers and a pack of hyena-like shades that follow him wherever he goes. Who the man is and what he wants, not even Odd’s deceased informants can tell him. What happens next is a mysterious battle between light and darkness.

The film was produced by Sommers, John Baldecchi and Howard Kaplan. Image Entertainment is set to release Odd Thomas in the beginning of 2014.
