Liam Neeson is being courted to star in an American film adaptation of Harlan Coben’s novel “Tell No One” at Warner Bros. Pictures and Universal Pictures.
The story follows a pediatrician out on a lake with his wife when she suddenly vanishes and he is attacked. She turns up dead and is declared the victim of a serial killer.
Years later, more bodies turn up and the doctor becomes the prime suspect, while at the same time he is given evidence that his wife wasn’t dead at all and has gone into hiding for something related to the work she did.
Chris Terrio (“Argo”) is adapting the script for this version and will reportedly have to do more work on it before Neeson will officially attach himself. It will happen, but is probably a little while off yet.
The film follows Guillaume Canet’s well-regarded and internationally successful French language adaptation in 2006 starring Francois Cluzet, Kristin Scott Thomas and Jean Rochefort.
