The Lucky One posterZac Efron, Taylor Schilling and Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks have all confirmed to visit Melbourne and Sydney in April in support of their new romantic drama The Lucky One, Melbourne will host the World Premiere of the film which will be followed by a Sydney Premiere shortly after.

Based on Nicholas Sparks’ bestseller The Lucky One, Zac Efron (17 Again, Charlie St. Cloud) stars alongside Taylor Schilling (upcoming Argo) and Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents franchise) in this romantic drama directed by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks (Shine, No Reservations).

U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive—a photograph he found of a woman he doesn’t even know. Learning her name is Beth (Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.

Hicks directs from a screenplay by Will Fetters (Remember Me), adapted from the Nicholas Sparks novel The Lucky One. The producers are Denise Di Novi, who previously produced film adaptations of the Nicholas Sparks novels A Walk To Remember, Nights In Rodanthe and Message in a Bottle, and Kevin McCormick (Arthur). Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Village Roadshow Pictures, a Di Novi Pictures production, a Scott Hicks film, The Lucky One. The film will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, and in select territories by Village Roadshow Pictures.

The Lucky One is released in Australia on 19 April 2012 from Roadshow.
