Image Entertainment has acquired all U.S. rights to Stephen Sommers' $27 million adaptation of the Dean Koontz novel "Odd Thomas". A first quarter 2014 release is planned.
Anton Yelchin, Willem Dafoe and Addison Timlin star in the film take on the first in Koontz's seven-book series about a clairvoyant short-order cook who finds himself trying to stop a disastrous event from happening.
The announcement comes as a minor surprise. The film was already released in parts of Europe, in some cases direct to disc, which resulted in a pirated DVD rips leaking onto torrenting sites back in June.
