Sommers Adapting Koontz’s “Odd Thomas”?

Stephen Sommers (“The Mummy,” “Van Helsing”) is set to helm an adaptation of Dean Koontz’s “Odd Thomas” book series reports Production Weekly.

The novels follow Odd, a man who has a kind of ‘psychic magnetism’ and tries to do his best to help lost souls in the California desert town of Pico Mundo where he also works as a short order cook.

Two years ago the first mention of a film adaptation was revealed by Koontz himself who said he was happy with a script he had just received based on the book, and an unnamed actor had already signed on to play the title character. Still no word on who that might be or if that’s still the case.
