If you like books by Harlan Coben, a piece of good news is that one of his latest thrillers is coming to the big screen. Lawrence Kasdan and Harlan Coben will partner to write and produce a screen adaptation of Coben’s new novel Stay Close.
In Stay Close (which we reviewed here), a past crime returns to devastate the lives of a photojournalist, a suburban mother with a hidden past, and a homicide detective obsessed with a series of unsolved disappearances. The Hitchcockian thriller plunges all three into a dark world of sex, secrets and shocking violence.
Harlan Coben’s critically acclaimed novels have been published in forty-one languages and have sold over fifty million copies around the world. Coben has won an Edgar Award, a Shamus Award and an Anthony Award, and is the first author to be honored with all three. His last four novels have debuted at #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list.
Coben’s 2001 thriller Tell No One was turned into a hit French film by director Guillaume Canet and is slated to be re-made in the United States, with Ben Affleck directing and Kennedy/Marshall producing at Warner Bros.
Four-time Oscar-nominee Lawrence Kasdan has a lot of great honors under his belt including the Golden Bear Award for Best Picture at the Berlin Film Festival for Grand Canyon. He has also written and produced famous movies such as Bodyguard and Return Of The Jedi so we are looking forward to seeing this new film.
