It may be a while before Lasse Hallstrom get around to directing the adaptation of this summer’s big Swedish noir title, The Hypnotist. (FSG, 6/21). He has just committed to directing a film based on Nicholas Sparks’ Safe Haven (he directed 2010’s Dear John, also based on a Sparks novel).

In addition to Dear John, several other Sparks novels have been made into movies; The Notebook, The Last Song and Nights in Rodanthe.

Production is expected to begin this year.
