Image Entertainment Picks Up Delayed 'Odd Thomas' for US Release

September 24, 2013

Odd Thomas

Earlier this summer, we learned the adaptation of Dean Koontz's thriller Odd Thomas had been delayed indefinitely because of a legal dispute from Two Out of Ten Productions (TOOT) and Fusion Films against Outsource Media Group Fund, ABS Investment Group, individuals Craig Chang and Mark Bishop, and Outsource Media Group. But now the film from director Stephen Sommers is finally getting distribution as Image Entertainment has announced acquisition of US rights for the adaptation that stars Anton Yelchin (Fright Night, Star Trek) as a short-order cook named Odd Thomas who can talk with the dead.

The paranormal secret is known only to Thomas' girlfriend (Addison Timlin) and the local police chief (Willem Dafoe) as Thomas tries to do his best by the silent souls who seek him out, sometimes wanting justice and helping the police solve, or even prevent, a crime. But when 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, the spirits who normally come to Thomas' aid are helpless, and a terrible catastrophe lingers on the horizon. The film will hit theaters sometime early in 2014.
