So far, six films have been adapted from Sparks' books: 'Message in a Bottle,' 'A Walk to Remember,' 'The Notebook,' 'Nights in Rodanthe,' 'Dear John' and 'The Last Song,' accounting for more than $550 million at the worldwide box office.
'Safe Haven,' according to THR, centers on "a young North Carolina woman determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships. As she begins to fall in love, she struggles with a dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her."
Hallström has already put in duty on one Sparks adaptation, 'Dear John,' which starred Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried; it grossed $80 million at the domestic box office.
'Safe Haven' is scheduled to begin production later this year.
