I’m thrilled that Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough have agreed to come aboard Safe Haven Movie—it’s hard to think of an actor better-suited to play the character of Alex than Josh, and Julianne will bring a combination of vulnerability and strength to the role of Katie. They are both such talented and charismatic individuals – and best of all, they have tremendous personal chemistry, which is essential for this film. NICHOLAS SPARKS
I completely agree Nicholas - and I know we here at Stars Hollow are more than happy about seeing the delightful Josh in one of your movies. Personally I am extra thrilled to find out that Julianne will also be gracing our screens again. I have a little girl crush on Julianne so I'm giving 2THUMBS UP to this casting.
SAFE HAVEN -
When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North
Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about
her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid
forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two
reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a
kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken
single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to
let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and
becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family.
as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that
still haunts and terrifies her . . . a past that set her on a fearful,
shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of
Southport. With Jo's empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually
realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one
of riskier rewards . . . and that in the darkest hour, love is the only
true safe haven.
