Boardwalk Empire star Jack Huston has signed on to appear in FOX's upcoming Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Longest Ride, according to Deadline.
Jack Houston is set to play Ira, a young man just back from WWII who falls in love and marries a young woman, set to be played by Oona Chaplin.
The story follows a 90-year-old Ira who is trapped in a car after an accident on a snow-covered road and begins to have flashbacks of his long relationship with his late wife. The film also follows a burgeoning contemporary relationship between a bull rider (Scott Eastwood) and a young college student (Britt Robertson).
Director George Tillman, best known for his films Faster, Notorious, Men Of Honor, and, more recently, The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, is helming The Longest Ride, which is currently scheduled for an April 3, 2015 release.
