Jackman To Star In Coben’s “Six Years”

Hugh Jackman is attached to star in a film adaptation of Harlan Coben’s upcoming novel “Six Years” at Paramount Pictures.

The story centers on Jake Fisher, a man who watched the love of his life, Natalie, marry another man. Six years have passed when Jake comes across the other man’s obituary.

He resolves to attend the funeral, hoping to catch a glimpse of Natalie. But the mourning widow is not Natalie, throwing all of his past memories with the woman into question.

Tom Rothman and Mark Gordon are in negotiations to produce the film, however no screenwriter or director is yet attached.

Only one of best-selling author Coben’s books has been translated to the screen – Guillaume Canet’s well-regarded “Tell No One” in 2006. Ben Affleck is attached to direct a remake of that film which is in development at Warner Bros. Pictures.
