Who doesn't love a Nicholas Sparks movie???
Safe Haven is the next in line to hit the big screen and i can't wait!! If you haven't read the book do it, its brilliant!!! I think it was the first of his books that hasn't had me bawling my eyes out at the end of it but its still a great story, thoroughly recommend reading the book first as it is fantastic.
The story is about Katie (Julianne Hough) who has moved to a small town after escaping her abusive ex husband. All she wants do is survive and keep hidden from her ex and has no interest in connecting with anybody until she meets Alex (Josh Duhamel) which after a series of events pushes the two together even with Katie's reluctance to form personal ties. Alex is a local resident in the small town of Southport his wife died leaving him to raise his two kids alone but something draws him to Katie.
I really hope that the film sticks as close to the original story as possible because it is such a good story and from the trailer it looks like it is sticking to the story and i can't wait!
I love Julianne Hough as a performer especially in Footloose and Rock of Ages and i am really looking forward to seeing her do something different and more serious and Josh Duhamel what can i say, i love him!
The film is being directed by Lasse Hallstrom and also stars Cobie Smulders, David Lyons, Scott Porter and Cullen Moss.
