Warner Bros. has been on a tear in the past few days, buying material for new films and/or setting up screenwriters to develop projects for the studio. After the break, we’ve got info on the following three projects, each of which is quite a bit different from the others:
- The David Dobkin script Arthur & Lancelot, which (as you’d guess) is a new telling of the Arthurian legend, only with a new spin.
- The new Nicholas Sparks novel, The Best of Me.
- And Halo: Reach writer Peter O’Brien will rewrite the action film Line of Sight. Read More »
Update: Killer Films has contacted us and issued the following statement “Christine Vachon of Killer Films is not producing The Lucky One. To the best of my knowledge neither Daniel Radcliffe or Lily Rabe is attached to star in the project.” The original story follows:
I think we now know what Daniel Radcliffe is going to do when he gets through with the final Harry Potter films in the next month or two. It would seem that he and Lily Rabe have been cast in Doug McGrath‘s upcoming The Lucky One, adapted from the novel by Nicholas Sparks. Sparks and McGrath seem like odd bedfelows – the director has adapted books before, bringing us Emma, Nicholas Nickleby and Infamous, but they were rather more literary works, shall we say, than a Sparks novel would tend to be.

Walt Disney Pictures has released the trailer for The Last Song, an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ forthcoming novel, starring Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Greg Kinnear and Kelly Preston.
THE LAST SONG is set in a small Southern beach town where an estranged father (GREG KINNEAR) gets a chance to spend the summer with his reluctant teenaged daughter (MILEY CYRUS), who’d rather be home in New York. He tries to reconnect with her through the only thing they have in common—music—in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances.
The only reason I’m posting this trailer is that almost every girl I know seems to love (not just like, but love) the past adaptations of Sparks’ novels, like A Walk to Remember and The Notebook. The notes in this story ring too loud and obvious for me, as I’m sure it will for you. I guess every Sparks adaptation can’t be a home run, or else we’d never have Nights in Rodanthe. Watch the trailer after the jump.
