Lasse Hallstrom Gives Full Support on "Sammy"



Swedish filmmaker Lasse Hallstrom is attached to direct Columbia Pictures' new rom-com flick "Sammy" with Delia Ephron writing the script.

Back to romantic comedy after his last take on period piece "Casanova", Swedish filmmaker Lasse Hallstrom has been tapped to helm a big screen feature simply titled "Sammy" for Columbia Pictures, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Penned by Delia Ephron, the picture presents a look on what will happen when a woman who can sense what animals are thinking meets a man who claims to have the same relationship with dead people. Here the scribe will also produce alongside Laurence Mark and Leslie Holleran.

Hallstrom, who initially worked as director for music videos, particularly those made for ABBA, reached his international success through his 1985 feature directorial effort in "My Life as a Dog" which enabled him to establish a career in Hollywood. His latest work "The Hoax", starring Richard Gere, is scheduled to open in limited theaters on April 13 this year.
