Casting Shortlist: Dean Koontz’ ‘Odd Thomas’

Update: Lily Collins is said to have been offered the role, although the article keeps vanishing and reappearing with new info.

And so it continues…

Reporting on actors NOT locked in for a role, Variety is writing that Emma Roberts (Scream 4), Lily Collins (Priest), Kat Dennings, Portia Doubleday and Addison Timlin are on the shortlist to play “Stormy Llewellyn,” the girlfriend of the title character in Odd Thomas.

Anton Yelchin is attached to star in the supernatural thriller, which Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, Van Helsing) is directing from his own script, based on the best-selling novel by the incredible Dean Koontz (who also swore he’d never let one of his novels be adapted into a feature ever again).

Set in a California desert town, story follows Odd Thomas, a short-order cook with clairvoyant abilities who encounters a mysterious man with a link to dark, threatening forces.

Production is scheduled to start May 2 in Santa Fe, N.M.
