Paramount Pictures has hired three-time Black List nominated scribe Jonathan W. Stokes to pen a feature adaptation of the Harlan Coben novel "Six Years" which is being shaped as a potential star vehicle for Hugh Jackman.
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.
Mark Gordon is producing. 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.
