Benjamin Walker is set to lead the adaptation of the Nicholas Spark’s novel, THE CHOICE. The film, helmed by Ross Katz, marks the ninth adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Walker will portray Travis Parker, a man who begins a romantic relationship with his neighbor in a small coastal town. The film is produced by Sparks, among others and penned by Bryan Sipe.
Walker has recently been featured in the poorly received “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and the HBO dramatic series “Muhammad Ali’s Greatest Fight.” The “Flags of our Fathers” actor has a few upcoming projects including the action adventure film “The Moon and the Sun” as well as director Ron Howard’s “Heart of the Sea.” He also has several films in development such as “2:22” and “The Great Wall” where he will star alongside Bryan Cranston and Matt Damon.
