Dean Koontz fans, are you ready to get excited? Or rather, are you ready to casually acknowledge that another major role in the film adaptation of Odd Thomas has almost been filled? Nod your head nonchalantly and we'll begin.

The role of Stormy Llewellyn, which sounds like a dragon porn star's name, has been offered to Lily Collins (The Blind Side). She beat out a bunch of other young ladies, like Emma Roberts, Portia Doubleday, and Kat Dennings, for the opportunity to play Anton Yelchin's girlfriend. That's something worth Yelchin about. We'll see if she accepts the part.

Directed by Stephen Sommers, the plot concerns California desert townie Thomas, "a short-order cook with clairvoyant abilities who encounters a mysterious man with a link to dark, threatening forces." Sounds like Odd lives up to his name. Production will start May 2, provided ghosts don't screw up the filming. As long as they stay in their special trailer, like they're supposed to, everything will be fine. (Variety)
