Hugh Jackman Signs On For Mindbender Thriller, Six Years

sixyearsHarlan Coben‘s novel Six Years is published today, and with perfect timing, a story arrives at The Hollywood Reporter attaching Hugh Jackman to a movie version.

It is an early announcement – there’s no writer or director attached as yet. But the book has such an intriguing hook, I can imagine what Jackman found appealing.

Here’s how THR set it up:

The novel 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.

That Six Years is the title, and not Natalie, for example, suggests something too. What has happened in the intervening time? Why is this period of interest, and not just the mistaken identity?

I want to know, so I’m off to my Kindle app right now. I know – whoever set this story up at The Hollywood Reporter today nailed the timing. Good PR move, whoever you are.
