Cinemystery: Warner Bros. Options New Jo Nesbø Thriller

Cinemystery: Crime Novels Adapted for Film

Warner Bros. has acquired the film rights to the Jo Nesbø thriller The Son — a book that, as far as we can tell, has yet to be published, even in the author's native Norway. (It is scheduled to be published here in the US by Knopf in 2014.) Though most of Nesbø's novels are centered on his series character Harry Hole, this new one is apparently a stand-alone. (Nesbø has another stand-alone that was recently filmed, Hodejegerne — "Headhunters" — and from which Summit has optioned the rights to an English-language adaptation.)

Deadline has the transaction details while also providing this overview: A young man, in prison for a crime he confessed to, but did not commit, learns that his police officer father's death may not have been a suicide as reported, but that he may have been murdered. He sets out to determine the truth while also bringing to justice those involved in the crime that landed him in prison.
