Hilary Swank is set to star in "P.S. I Love You" for Alcon Entertainment with Richard LaGravenese set to direct this fall in New York and Ireland.

LaGravenese and Steve Rodgers adapted the bestselling Cecilia Ahern novel, about a widow whose life is rejuvenated when letters left by her husband send her on a series of adventures.

Alcon partners Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove produce with Wendy Finerman. Warner Bros. will distribute domestically.

WB locked down domestic distribution through its output arrangement with Alcon. Summit Entertainment is selling international rights.

Molly Smith is a producer, and Lisa Zupan and John H. Starke are exec producers.

"P.S." marks a swift reteaming for Swank and LaGravenese, who just completed "Freedom Writers," which Paramount Pictures will release in January.

Swank next stars in the Brian De Palma-directed "Black Dahlia" for Universal, bowing Sept. 15, followed in November by Warner Bros. thriller "The Reaping."
