RADIO // Beyond the SubtitlesGuillaume Canet & Harlan Coben, Tell No One
Hosted by Stephen Schaefer
Originally aired 7/7/08
How does one of America's bestselling thrillers become a French-made box-office hit? In the case of Harlan Coben's Tell No One, it was simple. The option by English director Michael Apted lapsed and French actor-director Guillaume Canet got lucky. As Canet tells us, he fought to keep Francois Cluzet, an '80s leading man and a ringer for the young Dustin Hoffman, and easily transposed the action from Manhattan and Washington, D.C., to contemporary Paris. Coben naturally is thrilled and hopes Canet will do the English-language remake.
