According to THR, Hugh Jackman is attached to star in a film adaptation of Harlan Coben’s upcoming novel “Six Years” at Paramount Pictures.
The project centers on Jake Fisher, who watched the love of his life, Natalie, marry another man. Six years have passed when Jake comes across the other man’s obituary.
He resolves to attend the funeral, hoping to catch a glimpse of Natalie. But the mourning widow is not Natalie, throwing all of his past memories with the woman into question.
Coben’s past five novels have debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times best-seller list.
No screenwriter or director is attached to the project. Tom Rothman, the former 20th Century Fox chief, is in negotiations to produce alongside Mark Gordon.
