If there’s no official rule against James Marsden landing the girl in his movies, it sometimes seems like there is a conspiracy against him. The Notebook. Enchanted. Superman Returns. He’s always getting left standing, as the odd man out. He even got squeezed out of the X-Men films, and one of the rare occurrences where he actually ended up with the girl was 30 Rock, where he ended up with a Lemon. Clearly, he’s just not good-looking enough.
Well, it seems like he’s finally going to catch a break—in a Nicholas Sparks film, no less!

The Gosling baby is here!
The gorgeous couple welcomed a baby girl on Friday, September 12, Et can confirm. Eva spent a few days in the hospital recuperating, before bringing the baby home.
News broke in July that the two were expecting.
"She’s very independent but she's content with her partner. She finally found the person she really wants to be with," People quoted a source about the notoriously private Hitch actress, who's said in the past that she wasn't planning on getting married or having children.
The couple has been dating since 2011, after meeting on the set of their 2012 film The Place Beyond the Pines.
This will be the first child for both, though plenty of people are already speculating that the Gosling offspring will probably be one of the most beautiful babies ever -- including [link=nm »
I’m probably not the audience for Nicholas Sparks books and films, but it cannot be denied that he has a tremendous track record in both, given successes such as The Notebook (and its film adaptation), A Walk to Remember (and its film adaptation) and more. Those film adaptations of his books were on the big screen, but tonight he makes his television debut as executive producer of Deliverance Creek, airing 8pm Et on Lifetime. The two-hour movie comes from his Nicholas Sparks Productions. Deliverance Creek is not based on a Nicholas Sparks work, but does include the themes that fans … Continue reading →

Best-selling author Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook) makes his television debut as executive producer of the two-hour Lifetime programming event Deliverance Creek (premiering on September 13th), a revenge drama centering on a widow and mother of three who is determined to protect her family and land at any cost during the Civil War. Two years into the Civil War, Belle Gatlin Barlowe (Lauren Ambrose) faces uncertainty in the life before her as she attempts to defend her family’s land by any means necessary. When the corrupt bank that runs their town pushes Belle into becoming an outlaw, it sets off a chain of events that force her to question whether it’s better to be good or to survive. It also stars Wes Ramsey, Yaani King, Caitlin Custer, Christopher Backus, Riley Smith, Katherine Willis, Christopher Baker, Skeet Ulrich, Barry Tubb and Joel Johnstone. During this recent interview to promote the premiere of the two-hour film, »

Including the release of his debut novel, The Notebook, in 1996, Nicholas Sparks has never published a book that didn’t become a best-seller, and nine of them have been adapted into movies. But for his television-producing debut, the author is overseeing someone else’s material: Melissa Carter’s Deliverance Creek. The Civil War–era revenge tale has been fashioned into a two-hour Lifetime movie starring Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under), and it is the first of five TV projects Sparks’s company has in the pipeline with cable networks. Two days before Deliverance Creek’s Saturday-night premiere, Sparks took a break from his busy schedule to chat with Vulture about his books, overcoming writer’s block, and the romance-lit capabilities of Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt.Deliverance Creek is a backdoor pilot, meaning it might still morph into a miniseries or something more. Does a green light for additional episodes hinge entirely on ratings, »

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby is about a couple, but it isn’t necessarily a love story: Eleanor (Jessica Chastain) and Conor (James McAvoy) are happily married until a tragic event shakes them and separates them. It’s no Blue Valentine, but it’s no The Notebook either—the movie depicts two people united by marriage and trauma dealing with their grief in very different ways.
That plot alone might not sound entirely intriguing at first glance, but director Ned Benson created three separate films out of the story to create three different experiences. There’s Them, which opens Friday »

Belgium-based production shingle Corsan has set Alpha Dog and The Notebook director Nick Cassavetes to helm Expiration, the action-thriller scripted by Broken City scribe Brian Tucker that sold in a mid-six- to seven-figure deal in 2011. Story follows an ex-cia operative turned assassin who fails his assignment when he’s poisoned, and sets out to find his killer and settle the score with just 20 hours left to live. Randall Emmett and George Furla will produce for their Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films alongside Corsan CEO Paul Breuls. Cassavetes most recently helmed the Fox female-driven comedy The Other Woman, which grossed $194 million worldwide.
The company is currently in Toronto selling international rights to the now-filming Emperor, starring Adrien Brody and directed by Lee Tamahori. Paradigm is repping domestic on the revenge pic. Corsan and Breuls are repped by Paradigm and attorney Harris Tulchin. Cassavetes is repped by Resolution.

There have been a lot of rumours about the second season of True Detective since the first batch of episodes wrapped up a little earlier this year, but now things finally seem to be falling into place for the HBO drama.
Justin Lin is apparently in talks to direct what is being described as a “handful” of episodes when True Detective returns, and while a specific number is currently unknown, he won’t be following in the footsteps of Cary Fukunaga by directing every single episode as the Jane Eyre helmer did for season one.
Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn are all said to now be in final negotiations for the three lead male roles, while the fourth – a woman – has yet to be cast. We’ve already heard that Mad Men’s Elizabeth Moss is in the running, and while that’s still the case, she’s »

Ever since the phenomenal success of The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks’ novels have been hot property in the adaptation world. This year’s latest installment, The Best Of Me, will no doubt bring in (typically female) audiences, but I can’t help but cringe at the obvious resemblance between it and its predecessor.
Michelle Monaghan/Liana Liberato and James Marsden/Luke Bracey star as highschool sweethearts Amanda and Dawson. Separated for 20 years, the pair reunite only to find that their past feelings are still there. However, the forces that drove them apart still exist, with the couple having to overcome obstacles they thought had disappeared.
The dancing scene, the kissing in the rain…it all looks a little too familiar.

There’s some obscure (and possibly occult) law that if enough people sob at a movie, their tears will fertilize a new film empire. It’s why James Cameron stopped making regular action movies and started putting out three-hour epics like Titanic and Avatar, all designed around jerking as many tears as possible. This would also explain the alleged reports that Cameron showed up during random screenings of Titanic to dab at people’s tears with a wad of hundreds and chuckle menacingly to himself. Nicholas Sparks did the same thing with The Notebook. He got the requisite number of sobs, and now he’s set for life. Along with this year’s The Best of Me and next year’s The Longest Ride, yet another film based on one of his novels is now in the works. Variety reports Sparks’s novel “The Choice” will be adapted into a feature by Ross Katz, whose »

Published in 2007, Nicholas Sparks' The Choice follows a man and a woman who first meet as neighbors in a coastal town in North Carolina, whose relationship blossoms into a romance neither of them imagined would happen.
The project marks the 11th Nicholas Sparks novel to be adapted for a feature film, joining other hit adaptations such as Message in a Bottle, A Walk to Remember, The Notebook, Dear John, The Lucky One and last year's Safe Haven. The author currently has two adaptations in post-production, The Best of Me and The Longest Ride.

Lionsgate acquired the North American and U.K. distribution rights in June. The project is set to begin shooting in October in Wilmington, N.C.
“The Choice,” published in 2007, tells the story of a man and a woman who meet first as neighbors in a small coastal town in North Carolina and end up pursuing a relationship that neither could have foreseen. Bryan Sipe has written the screenplay.
Katz made his feature film directorial debut in 2009 with HBO’s “Taking Chance. »

About as different from its 2004 Ryan Gosling — Rachel McAdams namesake as possible, The Notebook (A nagy füzet) recounts the harrowing saga of unnamed teenage twin boys (András and Lázló Gyémánt) who, in 1944 Hungary, are unceremoniously dumped by their mother (Gyöngyvér Bognár) at their grandmother's (Piroska Molnár) remote farm for protection from WWII horrors.
There, the old "witch" beats them and berates them as "bastards." In response, the siblings teach one another how to endure pain and hardship. Bleak circumstances lead to bleak moral codes in János Szász's sobering wartime drama, as the boys study the Ten Commandments but find that blackmail, cruelty, and murder are not »
Movies about young love are hard to pull off, and when they don't work, they can be cloying and obnoxious. Done right, though, there is something both lovely and piercing about them, and while I think "If I Stay" has to do a fair amount of juggling to get its premise to work, there is a cumulative power to it that I found undeniable and earned. "Earned" is a big word for me in films like this. One of the biggest problems when you're making a film about love between people of any age is showing how love sparks between people and how it flourishes and doing it without giving in to short-cuts or cliche. How many times have you seen a supposed romance and the meeting is completely ridiculous? How many movies have you seen where you're supposed to just accept that characters have fallen in love because that's »

For his first TV venture, superstar romance novelist and screenwriter Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook, A Walk to Remember) saddles up to executive produce a Civil War Western with a feisty female in the crosshairs. The Lifetime movie (and backdoor pilot) Deliverance Creek (airing Saturday, Sept. 13 at 8/7c) stars Lauren Ambrose (Six Feet Under) as widowed mother Belle Gatlin Barlowe, who turns outlaw to protect her family and land from corrupt bankers.

It's time to play a ridiculously hard game of "Who's Hotter?"
It's time to play a ridiculously hard game of "Who's Hotter?"
Hollywood heartthrobs Channing Tatum, James Marsden, Robert Pattinson and Eddie Redmayne decided to suit up all at once and pose for a photo at Thursday's Hollywood Foreign Press Association's Grants Banquet at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Pics: Who'd You Rather Date?
This seems like too much handsomeness and swagger for one building to hold!
Here's a few more pics to help you with this difficult decision.
"I blame you for thinking you knew what was best for me when it was you who was best for me."
A full trailer has been released for the upcoming romantic drama The Best of Me, which stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. The movie is based on a book written by Nicholas Sparks, who is also the author of books such as The Notebook and A Walk to Remember, both of which were adapted into great movies.
I'm normally not a romantic movie kind of guy, but these films that come from the novels Sparks writes kind of hit a chord with me. The Notebook, is easily one of my favorite romantic films. That being said, I'm kind of looking forward to this new film. Hey… it's ok for movie geeks to like a wide variety of movies! The only thing that weirds me out about this movie is »
