On April 10, 2015, the world will be treated to another adaptation of one of Nicholas Sparks’s romance novels. The Longest Ride is coming to you from 20th Century Fox, under the direction of George Tillman Jr., who have us the Biggie Smalls biopic Notorious and Dwayne Johnson’s Faster. The film will feature the acting talents of Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson, Alan Alda, Oona Chaplin, and Jack Huston.

The film now has an official trailer, and here it is:

“Based on the bestselling novel by master storyteller Nicholas Sparks, THE LONGEST RIDE centers on the star-crossed love affair between Luke, a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia, a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City’s art world.  As conflicting paths and ideals test their relationship, Sophia and Luke make an unexpected and fateful connection with Ira, whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple. Spanning generations and two intertwining love stories, THE LONGEST RIDE explores the challenges and infinite rewards of enduring love.”

April 10 is my dad’s birthday. Maybe I’ll find him a date for this one.

(Between you and I: I probably won’t.)
