Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson has signed on to join the Stephen Sommers’ adaptation of Dean Koontz’s bestselling novel “Odd Thomas” at Fusion Films reports Variety.
The story follows Odd Thomas (Anton Yelchin), an optimistic clairvoyant short-order cook who can see shadowy figures called ‘bodachs’ that appear around death and disaster. When bodachs seem to be swarming around a diner customer he nicknames ‘Fungus Man’, Odd is convinced the man is connected to a terrible catastrophe about to occur.
Jackson will play Shamus Cocobolo, a blind deejay who helps the titular hero. Addison Timlin, Willem Dafoe, Patton Oswalt, Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Nico Tortorella co-star. Shooting kicks off imminently in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
