Harlan Coben’s beloved novel, Tell No One, is an interesting little piece of writing. An American-penned narrative, the book was then optioned and turned into an equally fantastic and talked about French thriller, and now, it’s heading back stateside for a new adaptation.

WB and Universal have optioned the rights to the thriller, and according to Deadline, the pair have tapped none other than Ben Affleck to direct the upcoming picture.

The film will be penned by Chris Terrio (Affleck’s upcoming ARGO), and will hit stateside thanks to WB, with Universal taking over international releasing duties.

Originally set up over at Sony, the film was first set to be penned by the duo of Kurtzman and Orci, but has since fallen apart, thus giving these two and Affleck the chance to take on the film.

As a fan of the original Guillaume Canet-directed film, I definitely think that this film is a perfect one for Affleck to take on. Affleck is a master at crafting suspenseful pictures, so this shouldn’t be anything different. This has been a project that’s been floating around for some time, so it’s not only nice to see it get some momentum, and quite a bit of momentum to boot.
