Nicholas Sparks' seventeenth novel The Longest Ride is the latest of his bestselling novels to be adapted by Fox into film and, with much excitement, reaches UK audiences on June 19th 2015. The film stars Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood, the son of prolific movie star Clint Eastwood, as our protagonists Sophia and cowboy Luke.
As a producer of the film, Sparks was pleased to be involved in casting the young actor and actress. In an interview with Kristin Klingshirn for The Bert Show, Nicholas Sparks said, "It was easy for us to imagine them (Robertson and Eastwood) in these roles. They fit our vision. For Sophia, we wanted someone who had passion and depth and looked college [aged]. Sophia had to be very intelligent. And for Scott, with Luke, it was the same thing, we were looking for that balance between 'I'm confident', but not arrogant. Just the way they walked, talked, handled themselves--who they are, their spirit."
Nicholas Sparks long ago made a name for himself as the world's most successful author of romantic fiction. His eighteen novels expertly combine passionate romance with tragedy and have cumulatively sold over one hundred million copies worldwide. The film adaptations, from The Notebook to Dear John, which have become classics, have cumulatively grossed over three-quarters of a billion dollars and star an incredible roster of actors, which includes Kevin Costner, Richard Gere, Amanda Seyfried, and of course, Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling. Not content with adapting ten novels into movies, Nicholas recently announced production of the eleventh, The Choice to be released in 2016 starring Tom Welling, of Smallville fame.
