Is Willem Dafoe the Next Star to Join Odd Thomas?
And yet more potential casting news has come in for the upcoming Stephen Sommers adaptation of Dean R. Koontz's Odd Thomas, this time in the form of Willem Dafoe, who's in talks to portray the local police chief in the tale.
Per The Hollywood Reporter the film, with a budget in the $20 to $30 million range, is due to shoot in New Mexico later this spring and summer. Already signed on is Anton Yelchin as Odd, a short-order cook who can commune with the dead, a secret only his girlfriend (Addison Timlin) and the police chief know. The young man can also spot malevolent forces called bodachs, who feed on pain and portend imminent death. When Odd sees them in spades surrounding a stranger, he finds himself in a race against time to avert a catastrophe.
