THE LONGEST RIDE is an upcoming 2015 romantic drama based on the bestselling novel by Nicholas Sparks. The film is directed by George Tillman, Jr. (Soul Food, Men of Honor, Notorious, Faster), written by Craig Bolotin (Black Rain, Light It Up) and stars Scott Eastwood (son of actor-director Clint Eastwood), Britt Robertson (Tomorrowland), Alan Alda, Oona Chaplin, and Jack Huston.
The story centers on the star-crossed love affair between Luke (Eastwood), a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia (Robertson), a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City’s art world. As conflicting paths and ideals test their relationship, Sophia and Luke make an unexpected and fateful connection with Ira (Alda), whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple.
