With everything Stephen King has ever written being adapted all over again, it makes sense that Dean Koontz would get some of the spillover. His Odd Thomas book series is getting the big screen treatment with Stephen Sommers behind the lens and Anton Yelchin squinting and looking permanently concerned in front of it.
Yelchin will play the title character; Odd Thomas, a short-order cook/ghost whisperer. When a mysterious man arrives in his small desert town, Thomas discovers he has one day to prevent a cataclysmic event. And in case this project doesn’t sound dopey enough for Sommers, never fear. In order to save the day, Thomas teams up with the spirit of Elvis Presley. You roll your eyes now, but think of how much fun we’ll have when Nicolas Cage is cast as the King. (Bloody Disgusting)
