It is being reported that Willem Dafoe is looking to join the cast of Odd Thomas. Based on a series of novels by Dean Koontz, Odd Thomas stars Anton Yelchin as the title character, with Dafoe being considered for the role of a local police chief. Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, G.I. Joe, Van Helsing) has written the screenplay and will be directing.

" 'The dead don’t talk. I don’t know why.' But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn."
