Best-selling American author Harlan Coben is getting another of his books adapted by the French reports Variety.

Gaumont has acquired rights to the France-set novel “Long Lost” about a sports agent who stumbles on a terrorist plot while searching for the long-lost daughter of an ex-girlfriend.

The film scored stellar reviews, making many critics Top Ten lists, and scored a $33.4 million global gross.

Nick Wechsler (“The Road,” “We Own the Night”) will produce ‘Lost’ which will be shot in English.
