Hugh Jackman is set to star in Six Years.

The Hollywood Reporter says the film is based on thriller writer Harlan Coben’s upcoming novel which is currently being developed by Paramount. A number of bidders were said to be vying for the project which as of yet has no director or writer attached to it.

The novel will tell the tale of a man who watched the love of his life marry another man. Six years later when he sees the man’s obituary and he attends the funeral, he finds the late man's widow is not his past love and his memories are thrown into doubt.

The project is set to be produced by Tom Rothman and Mark Gordon.
