In a press release today, Summit Entertainment announced the studio has optioned the Homelanders series of thrillers for young adults, written by Andrew Klavan. There are currently two books in the series, The Last Thing I Remember and The Long Way Home, which feature high school student Charlie West, who wakes up one morning a hunted man.
Two of Klavan's books have previously been adapted for film: True Crime, starring Clint Eastwood, and Don't Say a Word, starring Michael Douglas.
"I'm really excited about this," said Klavan. "These are top-notch filmmakers who can make movies as action-packed as the books are."
About The Last Thing I Remember (from the publisher): Charlie West just woke up in someone else's nightmare.
He's strapped to a chair. He's covered in blood and bruises. He hurts all over. And a strange voice outside the door just ordered his death.
The last thing he can remember, he was a normal high-school kid doing normal things -- working on his homework, practicing karate, daydreaming of becoming an air force pilot, writing a pretty girl's number on his hand. How long ago was that? Where is he now? Who is he really?
And more to the point ... how is he going to get out of this room alive?
