Lasse Hallström Directing Sammy

ON

Lasse Hallström (upcoming The Hoax) is attached to direct Columbia Pictures’ romantic comedy Sammy, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Written by Delia Ephron, the story kicks off when a woman who can sense what animals are thinking meets a man who claims to have the same relationship with dead people.

Laurence Mark is producing through his Sony-based company alongside Ephron. Hallstrom’s producing partner Leslie Holleran also is set to produce, contingent upon Hallstrom directing.
