    Review: 'Odd Thomas' Starring Anton Yelchin, Willem Dafoe And Addison Timlin

    It's strange how intermittently bestselling novelist Dean Koontz has been adapted, and how those adaptations—from the early Ben Affleck joint "Phantoms" to the Jeff Goldblum starring psychological thriller "Hideaway"—have been almost uniformly horrible.

    Wayyy back in the antediluvian days of July, we brought word that Stephen Sommers' Dean Koontz adaptation “Odd Thomas,” starring Anton Yelchin, Addison Timlin, Willem Dafoe and Patton Oswalt, was being delayed, perhaps indefinitely.

    Anton Yelchin To Star In Stephen Sommers' 'Odd Thomas'

    It's been clear ever since his debut in the otherwise weak "Hearts in Atlantis" that Anton Yelchin was destined to be a pretty big star. Across films like "Alpha Dog," "Fierce People," "Charlie Bartlett" and the unjustly neglected TV series "Huff," Yelchin's blended nerdiness and charisma with ease,...
