Warner Brothers has aquired the rights to James Renner's novel THE MAN FROM PRIMROSE LANE - and has enlisted Oscar-nominee Bradley Cooper to star, Deadline has announced.

THE MAN FROM PRIMROSE LANE is officially described as:

"In West Akron, Ohio, there lived a reclusive elderly man who always wore mittens, even in July. He had no friends and no family; all over town, he was known as the Man from Primrose Lane. And on a summer day, someone murdered him.

Fast-forward four years. David Neff, the bestselling author of a true-crime book about an Ohio serial killer, is a broken man after his wife's inexplicable suicide. When an unexpected visit from an old friend introduces him to the strange mystery of "the man with a thousand mittens," David decides to investigate. What he finds draws him back into a world he thought he had left behind forever. And the closer David gets to uncovering the true identity of the Man from Primrose Lane, the more he begins to understand the dangerous power of his own obsessions and how they may be connected to the deaths of both the old hermit and his beloved wife.

Deviously plotted and full of dark wit, James Renner's The Man from Primrose Lane is an audacious debut that boasts as many twists as a roller coaster. But beneath its turns, it's a spellbinding story about our obsessions: the dangerous sway they have over us and the fates of those we love."

Chad Feehan (SOUTHLAND) will write the adaptation. Kevin McCormick of Langley Park is set to produce the flick alongside Cooper, who is just coming off of Silver Linings Playbook with Jennifer Lawrence.
