If you haven’t already downloaded an illegal copy of Stephen Sommers’ “Odd Thomas,” then you can catch the flick on the big screen at some point during 2014.
The adaptation of the acclaimed Dean Koontz novel wrapped production back in 2012. Although many thought the movie would eventually find its way into North American theaters this year, the movie never surfaced. Now it’s being reported that “Odd Thomas” will arrive in the first quarter of next year. Better late than never? Let’s hope so.
Image Entertainment recently acquired the rights to the long-awaited adaptation. However, a specific release date hasn’t been announced as of this writing. Hopefully the movie will still have an audience since it’s currently available on a number of popular torrent sites. I’m not suggesting you go download it, mind you. I’m just making an observation.
Check out the official synopsis:
Odd Thomas (Yelchin) tells the story of a short-order cook with clairvoyant abilities. Maybe he has a gift, maybe it’s a curse, Odd has never been sure, but he tries to do his best by the silent souls who seek him out. Sometimes they want justice and he finds himself helping police solve a crime. Occasionally, they prevent one.
One day, however, a mysterious man comes to town with a filing cabinet stuffed with information on the world’s worst killers and a pack of hyena-like shades that follow him wherever he goes. Who the man is and what he wants, not even Odd’s deceased informants can tell him. What happens next is a mysterious battle between light and darkness.
“Odd Thomas” stars Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin, Willem Dafoe, Patton Oswalt, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Nico Tortorella. Need a trailer? We just happen to have one on-tap.
