Following behind Ryan Gosling (The Notebook). Josh Duhamel (Safe Haven) and Channing Tatum (Dear John), Scott Eastwood is in line to be the next Nicholas Sparks movie heartthrob. The son of Clint Eastwood will star in Sparks' book-turned-movie The Longest Ride, Deadline reports.
The 2013 romance novel "tracks a 91-year-old man trapped in a car crash who reflects on his life with his deceased wife as a young couple fall in love a few miles away." In the movie, Scott will play Luke Collins, "whose love affair with college senior Sophia Danko plays out as the youthful half of the romantic saga."
