George Tillman is directing the Fox 2000 movie, which will star Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson
“Game of Thrones” alum Oona Chaplin has been cast in Fox 2000's adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ bestselling romance novel “The Longest Ride,” TheWrap has learned.
Scott Eastwood and Britt Robertson star in the movie, which will be directed by George Tillman.
Story follows a 91-year-old man left stranded after a car crash who reflects on his life with his deceased wife Ruth as a young couple named Luke and Sophia fall in love nearby.
Chaplin will play young Ruth, who survived WWII and collected paintings with Ira, while Eastwood will play Luke, a mysterious young cowboy who falls for college senior Sophia (Robertson). The two couples have little in common yet their lives converge with unexpected poignancy.
Sparks and Theresa Park are producing with Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, while Bob Teitel will executive produce. Production will start June 16 in North Carolina.
