Odd Thomas
The Playlist giveth, and the Playlist taketh away. Today, it giveth new pictures for “Odd Thomas,” Stephen Sommers' adaptation of best-selling author Dean Koontz's supernatural thriller. And then it taketh away, with the news 

that the film may not be coming out anytime soon, due to a nasty financial dispute between two of the companies behind it.

Make no mistake, the film exists. Anton Yelchin took a break from yelling “Kyeptin on ze bridj!” in the "Star Trek" movies to star in it as a fry cook with supernatural powers, alongside Lily Collins, Tim Robbins, Willem Dafoe and Patton Oswalt. Oh, and 50 Cent, playing a blind DJ. (Awesome). It's finished, and it has a trailer that leaked out a little earlier this spring

. It's just sitting there, waiting for various Hollywood lawyers to finish off a “Hunger Games”-esque litigation fight (we hope). Basically, as THR reported earlier in the year, shingle Two Out Of Ten is taking their former production pals on the movie Outsource Media Group (good name) to court over $35 million they are apparently owed for marketing and other costs. So yeah, this could take a while....

In the meantime, the film has scored a DVD release in Hungary: a couple of decades from now, that information will be an incredibly obscure piece of trivia that you can use to enhance your standing with movie nerds around the world, so commit it to memory now. But do not despair, this summer will finally see the release

of “All The Boys Love Mandy Lane,” a perennial unreleased film. At which rate, expect “Odd Thomas” some time in 2020. [Page To Premiere]
