Warner Bros. and RatPac Entertainment have acquired movie rights to Harlan Coben’s mystery novel “Missing You” — a day before its publication by Dutton.

Brett Ratner will produce for RatPac and John Cheng and James Packer will be exec producers.

The story centers on a New York City Police Dept. detective who discovers the profile and photo of the ex-fiance who dumped her 18 years ago, leading her to a scheme by a killer.

Coben’s ” Tell No One” was adapted by French director Guillaume Canet; an English-language version is being adapted by Chris Terrio for Universal and director Gavin O’Connor.

His novel “Six Years” is at Paramount with Mark Gordon producing and Hugh Jackman attached to star.

Chantal Nong is overseeing for Warner Bros.

Coben’s deal was brokered by WME, Aaron Priest Agency and Gendler & Kelly.

News was first reported on Deadline.com.
