Thriller novelist Harlan Coben will team up with filmmaker Lawrence Kasdan to script and produce an adaptation of Coben’s soon-to-be published novel, Stay Close.
Kasdan will also direct this project. The book is slated for release on March 20th. According to Deadline, the script should be finished around the same time as the book’s publication date.
Here’s more from the release: “In Stay Close, a past crime returns to devastate the lives of a photojournalist, a suburban mother with a hidden past, and a homicide detective obsessed with a series of unsolveddisappearances. The Hitchcockian thriller plunges all three into a dark world of sex, secrets and shocking violence.”
Throughout his writing career, Coben has published more than twenty titles. This year, Coben will stay busy with this film project and writing the second installment in his young-adult series starring Mickey Bolitar. This book will come out in September 2012.
