Walt Disney Pictures has released the first trailer for “The Last Song”, the latest movie adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel. The film’s screenplay was also written by Nicholas Sparks himself with Julie Anne Robinson at the helm.
The film’s storyline follows a troubled teenager, played by Cyrus, and her estranged father, played by Greg Kinnear, as they reconnect with each other through music during a summer in a quiet Southern beach town. The film also stars Kelly Preston and Liam Hemsworth and is produced by Offspring Entertainment for Touchstone Pictures, an alternative film label of The Walt Disney Company. The Last Song is Sparks’ first screenplay to be brought to film as well as Robinson’s feature film directorial debut.
The Last Song had originally been scheduled for a January 8, 2010 release, but on September 22, 2009 it was announced the release had been delayed. The film is currently scheduled for a wide release on April 2, 2010. The delay was confirmed by statements from representatives for Disney and Cyrus, one of whom said “Easter weekend/spring break” would be a “better release date than January” for the film.
