Warners Acquires Coben’s “Missing You”

Warner Bros. Pictures and RatPac Entertainment have acquired the film rights to Harlan Coben’s mystery novel “Missing You” on the eve of its release.

The story follows a NYPD detective who, whilst browsing an online dating site, discovers the profile and photo of the ex-fiance who dumped her eighteen years ago.

She soon begins to unravel an intricate catfish scheme led by a calculating killer. Brett Ratner will produce.

Coben’s “Tell No One” was previously adapted into a French film of the same name in 2006 and is currently getting a new adaptation by “Argo” scribe Chris Terrio. A film version of his “Six Years” is currently in development at Paramount.
