Lily Collins offered female lead in Odd Thomas
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Lily Collins (ABDUCTION and THE BLIND SIDE) has been offered a role in the upcoming thriller ODD THOMAS which will be directed by Stephen Sommers (G.I. JOE: RISE OF COBRA). The film will be based on the Dean Koontz novel about a guy who can hear but not see the dead and possesses some psychic powers. The main lead has gone to Anton Yelchin and filming is set to start in May in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
I feel a little bad for Lily Collins because of her situation in the upcoming THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS. You may recall that Alex Pettyfer was offered the lead in that film before he got all of his other offers. The producers said that Pettyfer was their guy and if he didn’t do this film/franchise then the movie would not move forward, and so far it hasn’t. As of now Lily Collins is still the only actress attached and I have yet to hear any new information regarding the film. I’ll bet Pettyfer is not Lily Collins’ favorite person right now.
