Currently riding high on the weekend box office chart, THE LUCKY ONE is a deeply romantic drama centering on a Marine vet returning to the States from his third tour of duty in the Middle East determined to find the anonymous woman pictured in a photograph he found and credits with his still being alive. Based on the novel by NICHOLAS SPARKS, the film is directed by SCOTT HICKS from an adapted screenplay by WILL FETTERS and stars ZAC EFRON, TAYLOR SCHILLING, BLYTHE DANNER, ADAM LEFEVRE, JAY R. FERGUSON and RILEY THOMAS STEWART.
Another of over a half-dozen SPARKS tales of romantic fantasy adapted for the screen, THE LUCKY ONE had to make a few compromises before making the cut. During our recent interview with the author, he admitted that’s par for the course. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
