Another Studio Tries to Bring Harlan Coben's Tell No One to US Theaters

Tell No One by Harlan Coben

Last summer we posted about a studio project to create an English-language film adaptation of Harlan Coben's thriller Tell No One. (The book has already been adapted as the 2006 French film Ne le dis a personne.)

Now we're learning that the project has taken yet another turn, this time with Ben Affleck attached to direct a screenplay by Chris Terrio for Warner Bros. (Somewhat oddly, Deadline|New York seems to imply that this would be a remake of the French film, not an English language adaptation of the book. It may be a subtle difference, but it seems to be a distinction worth mentioning.)

The book was originally published in 2002 and apparently has been in the hands of several studios since then. It is a stand-alone — Coben is also the author of the Myron Bolitar mystery series — and involves a man, David Beck, whose wife was kidnapped and murdered ... or was she? A message has appeared on his computer, a phrase only he and his dead wife know. Suddenly Beck is taunted with the impossible — that somewhere, somehow, she is alive. Beck has been warned to tell no one. And he doesn't. Instead, he runs from the people he trusts the most, plunging headlong into a search for the shadowy figure whose messages hold out a desperate hope. But already Beck is being hunted down. He's headed straight into the heart of a dark and deadly secret — and someone intends to stop him before he gets there.
