Tell No One has certainly been through the works in Hollywood. The adaptation of Harlan Coben’s novel has already had the likes of Ben Affleck and Andrew Dominik attached to direct, but they’ve all since moved on. Now a new helmer has moved in, with Variety reporting that Gavin O’Connor has stepped up to the plate.
Tell No One is about a paediatrician who is out one night frolicking by a lake with his wife when she suddenly vanishes and he is severely beaten when he tries to find her. When she turns up murdered, he is the prime suspect. That’s until she’s declared a victim of a caught serial killer. Years later, bodies turn up in the same spot and the nightmare is repeated, the paediatrician again under suspicion. Right around that time, he’s given evidence that his wife wasn’t dead at all.
Gavin O’Connor is best known for directing Warrior, and more recently was a last minute replacement for Lynn Ramsay on the upcoming Jane Got A Gun. There’s no news on when Tell No One might shoot.
