Jonathan Stokes will adapt Harlan Coben’s novel SIX YEARS for Paramount Pictures. The story follows 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.
Hugh Jackman is attached to star. Mark Gordon will produce.
Stokes is quite the established writer as we just recently highlighted here in our look back at Hit List veterans. The last produced script he wrote was 2012’s “El Gringo” but we’ll see his name soon with the projects “Blood Mountain,” “Border Country” and “Murders & Acquisitions.”
He is repped by UTA.
