Writer/director Andrew Dominik (The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford) has set to work on writing a remake/re-adaptation of Harlan Coben’s international bestseller Tell No One. 24 Frames reports that Dominik is “reworking the story of a doctor who, after believing his wife has been murdered years before (and in fact after being named as a suspect in the case), begins getting mysterious messages suggesting she may still be alive.”
Dominik isn’t attached to direct at this point as he’s currently set to helm the Marilyn Monroe biopic Blonde starring Naomi Watts (which he also wrote). Assassination of Jesse James is a marvelous film (as is Dominik’s previous movie, Chopper) and I can’t wait to see what he does with Tell No One. I’ve also heard nothing but praise for Guillaume Canet’s 2006 adaptation of the book. It’s available to Watch Instantly on Netflix and it’s been sitting in my queue for far too long.
