The Choice trailer teases Nicholas Sparks’ next big film

The next Nicholas Sparks adaptation to hit the big-screen will be “The Choice,” and it is set to premiere in theaters in early 2016. The film was directed by Ross Katz, working off a screenplay that was written by Bryan Sipe.

While the film may be a few months away at this point, fans of Sparks’ work can watch the first teaser-trailer for the film thanks to an early release from Lionsgate.

In the trailer Benjamin Walker (“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”) narrates the opening sequences stating, “Now pay attention, ’cause I’m about to tell you the secret to life.” If his slow southern draw doesn’t grab your attention, then nothing will. Don’t worry Walker fans, he will return to closeout the teaser as well. Walker leaves us with the words, “Like I was saying, every path you take leads to another choice. Some choices can change everything. Every moment of the rest of your life hangs on it.”

Also featured in the trailer is Theresa Palmer (“Warm Bodies”) who’s character will wrestle with difficult decisions when choosing between two lovers.

The film has a ton of previous content to live-up to at this point, since almost ten of Sparks’ novels have been adapted into films.

The most popular Sparks option of course is “The Notebook,” but “A Walk to Remember” is a close second with fans, as is the film “Dear John“. “The Choice” will tell the story of Travis Shaw and Gabby Holland, who meet first as neighbors in a small coastal town and end up pursuing a relationship that neither could have foreseen.

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’ beloved North Carolina setting, culminating in the question that every couple must ask themselves: how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?

Joining Walker and Palmer in the film are Tom Welling, Alexandra Daddario, Maggie Grace and Tom Wilkinson. Lionsgate will release the film on February 5, 2016.
