Josh Duhamel Finds Safe Haven

Josh Duhamel Finds Safe Haven

The Nicholas Sparks adaptation factory keeps on chugging. Word arrived last year that Lasse Hallstrom, who just delivered Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, had signed on to direct Safe Haven based on the author’s book. He’s reached the casting stage and Variety reports that Josh Duhamel will be getting romantic for the movie.

Life Or Something Like It writer Dana Stevens has punched out the script, which finds a mysterious young woman arriving in a small North Carolina town and having difficulty settling into the tight knit community. Whispers and rumours spring up about her past, but things begin to change when she kicks off a relationship with a widowed storeowner (Duhamel), who has been busy looking after his two young children. Given the author's previous form, we're taking guesses now about a) which character previously served in the military and b) who dies at the end.

Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightley have both been linked to the female lead, but the job currently has a vacant sign hanging off it. Hallstrom is currently busy shooting detective thriller The Hypnotist, but will get to work on Safe Haven later this year ready for a February 2013 release date.

Duhamel was last seen in New Year’s Eve and has recently worked on thriller Scenic Route alongside Dan Fogler.
