Warner Bros. is in negotitaions with director

Warner Bros. is in negotiations with Scott Hicks (“Shine”) to direct “The Lucky One,” based on the Nicholas Sparks novel about a Marine searching for a mysterious woman.

The film’s produced by Denise Di Novi and Kevin McCormick, who segued late last year as Warner production president into a studio deal under the Langley Park banner. Di Novi’s produced three other Sparks adaptations for the studio — “Nights in Rodanthe,” “A Walk to Remember” and “Message in a Bottle.” Di Novi Pictures president Alison Green­span is exec producing.

Scribe Will Fetters adapted “The Lucky One,” published in 2008 by Grand Central Publishing. Story centers on a Marine who survives three tours in Iraq and attributes his good fortune to a photograph he carried of a woman he has never met. He sets out to meet his good-luck charm when he returns to North Carolina.

Hicks’ credits include “The Boys Are Back,” “No Reservations” and “Snow Falling on Cedars.”

He’s repped by CAA.
