Get your tissues out and start a fight with your boyfriend for not being as romantic as a character in a movie. Nicholas Sparks has a new film based on one of his bestselling novels and it’s sure to leave even the most even-tempered movie fan a crying ball of hot mess. In The Lucky One, Zac Efron stars as Logan, a soldier who narrowly misses being killed by a blast when he leaves his post to retrieve a picture half buried in ruble. Convinced the girl in the picture saved his life, Logan sets off to find her.
In the featurette below for The Lucky One, Efron talks about what drew him to the film. The video also includes an interview with Sparks, who talks about writing the book, which was later adapted into a film. Zac Efron is a pretty big name, but it will be interesting to see whether the film catapults him into super-stardom the way other Sparks’ movie’s have done – Ryan Gosling, anyone?
The Lucky One is scheduled to hit theatres April 20, 2012.Tweet
