Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas may be Adapted for Film

Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz
More information about the book

It's just a random tweet, so nothing may become of it, but Production Weekly is noting that director/screenwriter Stephen Sommers (The Mummy) may be interested in directing his own adaptation of Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz.

Here's what 21-year-old Odd Thomas has to say about himself (from the author's website): "I see dead people, spirits of the departed who, each for his own reason, will not move on from this world. Some are drawn to me for justice, if they were murdered, or for comfort, or for companionship; others seek me out for motives that I cannot always understand. This complicates my life."

The Odd Thomas series currently consists of four novels and two graphic novels (the latest, Odd Is on Our Side, to be published next month), so there's plenty of material from which to draw for a potential franchise.

  1. I love the books, but will need to hear some reviews before seeing the movie. It is hard to translate some books to the big screen, especially when the producer and/or director has never read it. I remain a hopeful skeptic.
