Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I know you're being sarcastic, but I'm sure Lasse Hallström will bring something fresh to the story.

'Sammy' speaks to Hallstrom
Source: Hollywood Reporter

Lasse Hallstrom is attached to direct Columbia Pictures' romantic comedy "Sammy."

Penned 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 shingle alongside Ephron. Hallstrom's producing partner Leslie Holleran also is set to produce, contingent upon Hallstrom directing.

Matt Tolmach, Amy Baer and Adam Milano are overseeing for the studio.

Hallstrom, whose credits include "The Shipping News," "Chocolat" and "The Cider House Rules," most recently helmed the Heath Ledger starrer "Casanova." The Oscar-nominated director's upcoming film is "The Hoax," starring Richard Gere.

Hallstrom to direct French remake
Helmer signs first-look deal with Regency TV
Source: Variety

Lasse Hallstrom is set to direct "Anthony Zimmer," a remake of the 2005 French film. Spyglass is financing and has set an early 2008 production start in Europe.

Hallstrom also has made a first-look production deal with Regency Television to develop programming he'll exec produce and direct. Deal comes after Hallstrom directed the Regency pilot "New Amsterdam," which will debut on Fox's fall schedule.

"Anthony Zimmer" will be Hallstrom's next feature assignment. Pic will be produced by Spyglass' Roger Birnbaum, Gary Barber and Jonathan Glickman. Leslie Holleran, Hallstrom's longtime producing partner, is expected to join as a producer.

Scripted by Julian Fellowes ("Gosford Park"), thriller concerns an American tourist who finds his life in danger when a female Interpol agent uses him as a dupe to flush out an elusive criminal with whom she once had an affair.

Original pic was written and directed by Jerome Salle. Spyglass and Canal Plus co-financed development and will produce the remake together. Spyglass, which this summer opens "Underdog," "Rush Hour 3" and "Balls of Fury," just wrapped the Katherine Heigl starrer "27 Dresses" and just started production on Universal's Greg Kinnear starrer "Flash of Genius," directed by Marc Abraham.

"New Amsterdam" marked Hallstrom's first TV job in America, but Regency Television president Robin Schwartz said it won't be his last.

"I sent him the script on a whim, and it turned out he'd done TV in Sweden and many commercials, and he just elevated the pilot," she said. "We might bring a concept to him, early on, and he will bring us ideas he has that fit better as a series than a feature."

Regency also has a deal with screenwriter Allan Loeb, who co-wrote and is an exec producer on "New Amsterdam."

Joan Allen fetches a 'Dog's' tale
'Bourne' actress to star in Hallstrom remake
Source: Variety
 
Joan Allen has been set to star and Lasse Hallstrom to direct "Hachiko, A Dog's Story," a remake of the Japanese film about an Akita's relationship with its owner.

Richard Gere had already been set to star in and produce the film.

Pic is being fully financed by Inferno, whose Bill Johnson is producing with Vicki Shigekuni Wong and Gere. Inferno's Jim Seibel and Paul Mason are exec producers, and Dean Schneider is co-producer.

Stephen P. Lindsey script is based on the true tale of a faithful Akita dog that kept vigil for nearly a decade, waiting for his master, who died and didn't return home. The dog is celebrated by the Japanese each year, and a statue was erected in his honor in Tokyo. Gere plays a college professor who takes in the dog.

Production will begin in January in Rhode Island.

Hallstrom and Gere last worked together on "The Hoax."

Allen is coming off "The Bourne Ultimatum" and just completed the Paul W.S. Anderson-directed "Death Race."

Inferno is in post-production on the Diane English-directed remake of "The Women," the comedy "Smother" and "The Heaven Project."
