Staff Reporter | On 11, Jul 2020
Netflix is lining up another Harlan Coben novel for the screen with new series Gone for Good.
The five-part French thriller will star Finnegan Oldfield, Nicolas Duvauchelle, Guillaume Gouix, Garance Marillier and is directed by Juan Carlos Medina.
It follows Guillaume Lucchesi (Finnegan Oldfield), who is now in his thirties and thought he had drawn a line under the terrible tragedy which saw the two people he loved the most die: Sonia (Garance Marillier), his first love, and Fred (Nicolas Duvauchelle), his brother. Ten years later, Judith (Nailia Harzoune), whose love has made his life worth living again, suddenly disappears during his mother’s funeral. To find her, Guillaume will have to face all the truths that were hidden from him by his family and friends, as well as those that he’d long decided to ignore. For better, but mostly for worse.
Gone For Good is yet another collaboration between Harlan Coben and Netflix, adding to Polish series The Woods, British series The Stranger and upcoming Spanish series El Inocente. Harlan Coben will serve as the show’s executive producer.
“Netflix has been a wonderful partner in adapting my novels in a variety of countries – and it’s a particular thrill to be making Gone For Good in France. I’m honored to be working with this incredibly talented French cast and crew,” said Coben in a statement.
Damien Couvreur, head of original french series at Netflix, added: “We are so excited that Harlan Coben and Calt Studio are bringing this gripping story to France. Gone for Good has all the ingredients of his great thrillers that have consistently sparked joy with our members ”
Directed by Juan Carlos Medina (Painless) and written by David Elkaïm and Vincent Poymiro – in collaboration with Pauline Guena, Nacim Mehtar and Marion Festraëts – the series will begin production in September.
