This new film will be the first Nicholas Sparks Production and Sparks talks about that processing, filming close to home and casting. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter star Benjamin Walker follows In the Heart of Sea with a starring role in The Choice and Sparks talked about the multi-talented actor, impressed by his humor and skills. Joining Walker is Teresa Palmer (Warm Bodies) and Sparks talks about their instant chemistry.

The Notebook remains Sparks’ biggest success, with a film earning over $80 million at the US box office, slightly ahead of Dear John. With 2015’s The Longest Ride, the Sparks’ franchise of films have grossed over $555 million in the US.

The Choice was Sparks’ 2007 hit novel and the writer shifted gears during the interview to talk about his most recent book, See Me, his writing process and what’s ahead.

Sparks, a devout Catholic, addressed that he strives to pen novels that both his daughter and grandmother could read and he’d not be embarrassed.

Check out the full interview below.

Maggie Grace, Alexandra Daddario, Tom Welling, Brett Rice, and Tom Wilkinson also star in The Choice.

The Choice 

When feisty medical student Gabby Holland moves in next door to perennial ladies’ man Travis Shaw, they embark on a surprising romantic journey neither imagined possible. Travis has always believed a serious relationship would cramp his easygoing lifestyle, while Gabby is preparing to settle down with her long-term boyfriend—until an irresistible attraction between the unlikely couple upends both of their well-planned lives. Spanning a decade and tracing the evolution of a love affair that is ultimately tested by life’s most defining events, this story features a memorable ensemble of friends and family in Sparks‘s beloved North Carolina setting, culminating with the question that every couple must ask themselves:  how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?
