Finally we get some distribution news about the release of popular Dean R Koontz book turned movie Odd Thomas. The film is directed by Stephen Sommers and stars Anton Yelchin, Ashley Sommers, William Dafoe and Leonor Varela.
Odd Thomas (Yelchin) 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 announcement was made today by Bill Bromiley, Chief Acquisitions Officer for Image Entertainment. This bodes well for us as we may get a chance to see Odd Thomas a lot sooner now. Stay tuned for more news on Odd Thomas as we move closer to a 2014 release date.
