Crimezine is a big fan of Ben Affleck. We liked his work on 201o crime hit The Town. The word on the Hollyweird Boulevard is that he will direct the US remake of Harlan Coben’s sensational mystery Tell No One. The book was first adapted for the 2006 French film directed  by Guillaume Canet and starred the marvelous Francois Cluzet and Kristin Scott Thomas (The super posh chick from Four Weddings and a Funeral)

The film was a big success in Europe, but was shot in French. Presumably Warner Brothers & Universal who have optioned the movie, are hoping that the Affleck treatment will make  the story a US smash too. Affleck is currently directing a political thriller Argo about the 1979 Iran Hostage crisis. Crimezine understands that Chris Terrio who penned Argo will also write the screenplay for Tell No One.

Crimeziners who cannot wait or the new Affleck film should check out the Harlan Coben book as a primer, It is one of the best stand alone Mysteries that The Edgar award winning writer has penned to date. Crimezine also recommends the 2006 French movie, which is fantastic. But Posh-Totty Kristin Scott Thomas is quintessentially British,we hear you cry— quite right— but she lives in Paris, has done for many moons and the result is très bien!
