Award-winning filmmaker Ole Bornedal has signed to direct the thriller, The Husband, based on the bestselling Dean Koontz novel of the same name. The Husband is a co-production with Random House, Inc.’s Random House Films division and Focus Features.
The Husband was originally published in 2006 in hardcover by the Bantam Books imprint of Random House, Inc., and published in paperback in 2007 by Bantam. It’s the story of an ordinary working man whose love for his wife is put to a harrowing series of tests over a 60-hour period, beginning when his peaceful workday is shattered by a phone call from a stranger.
Bornedal’s newest thriller as writer/director, Deliver Us From Evil, has just been released in his native Denmark. Just Another Love Story, also a thriller, was released earlier this year in the U.S. to critical acclaim.
