One common theme in all Nicholas Sparks books - besides the tear-jerking love story - is the setting. Sparks moved to North Carolina when he was a young man and fell in love with the scenery, so much so that each of his novels since 'The Notebook' has taken place in this beloved location. The gorgeous landscape of the South depicted in Sparks' novels translates beautifully to film, and The Choice is no exception.
Courtesy Lionsgate, we proudly present a beautiful set of stills from Sparks' upcoming adaptation The Choice - showcasing the stunning visuals the film and the South have to offer. Sparks' lends his own words to why these shots are quintessential North Carolina and the perfect backdrop for the love story that unfolds in The Choice.
There are few things more traditionally Southern than a wide, sweeping, covered porch. The weather is almost always beautiful, so most nights, you can sit outside comfortably. Except for the mosquitoes, of course, which is why the porch is screened!
Sparks highlights Mark Garner's work in this shot. Garner is the production designer of The Choice and best known for his work on The Notebook and Dear John.
This is Mark’s set design at its finest: quirky, eclectic, and sweet. Just like Gabby.

Sunset boat ride
Is there anything more romantic than a sunset boat ride?
Well if Nicolas Sparks books and movies have taught me anything the answer to that is "no!"
The Choice is romantic, beautifully shot and if you're anything like me you'll fall in love with the charm Benjamin Walker - who plays Travis in the film - brings to the table. A stellar cast in a gorgeous setting, totally worth a watch!
