Will Fetter, and The Lucky One

Tell Me a Story - viewpoint

Film scripts, film adaptations and Will Fetters.

Will Fetters - the lucky one.

A certain Mr. Will Fetters has landed the job of screen-writing "The Lucky One," an adaptation of the latest Nicholas Sparks novel that's been accepted by Warner Bros.

"The Lucky One" , a romantic drama, tells the tale of an American marine in Iraq who keeps a picture of a woman he has never met, because he believes it brings him good luck. However, when he tries to find the woman on his return to the US, he finds strange events surrounding her.....

Will Fetters, is also screen-writing "Memoirs," a drama about Summit relationships.

Nicholas Sparks has previously had film adaptations made of his books such as "The Notebook" and "Message in a Bottle" which earned $81 million and $52 million, respectively. His most recent film, "Nights in Rodanthe," brought in a more reserved $42 million.

I wonder if any of them thought of adapting the romantic drama, 'Without Reproach' as a film.... I'd be happy with far more humble returns.
