It's always a good sign when the author of the books, Dean Koontz, likes the movie. Excerpts:
Gerda and I and two friends just saw the completed Odd Thomas film. It is so wonderful that I am whacked flat by happiness. It makes no missteps, races forward with unrelenting momentum, is gripping, and has great heart, and even has an excellent score! It is a totally fresh wind in the genres upon which it touches, and we felt that we were seeing one of those rare productions with the potential to dramatically alter how other filmmakers approach such movies in the future...Unfortunately, it's held up in a financial and legal quagmire. Excerpts:
...The film's producers, Two Out of Ten Productions, is suing several organisations which it claims owe $35 million for marketing and paying off production loans.I'm going to cheat because I really want to see this movie in theaters: please pray for the successful release of this movie and excellent sequels to come.
Odd Thomas is not expected to be released until the legal matter is settled.
The Mummy director Stephen Sommers helmed the film, which stars Yelchin (Star Trek into Darkness) as a short-order cook who can speak to the dead.
Patton Oswalt, Addison Timlin, Nico Tortorella and Gugu Mbatha-Raw also feature in the movie...
