The Hollywood Reporter claims Phillippe will play the lead role, portrayed in the upcoming TEN series by Martin Henderson.
Ben Garner (Phillippe) is a house painter and family man who stumbles across the dead body of his 4-year-old neighbour while on his morning run, but who becomes the prime suspect in his slaying.
The American adaptation, which is produced by Kapital Entertainment and Australia’s Hoodlum is written by Barbie Kligman (Private Practice, The Vampire Diaries, CSI: NY).
For Phillippe, the role marks his return to television following his role in Damages.
