In April 2014, 20th Century Fox dated a film adaptation set to be released on April 3, 2015, with George Tillman Jr. in final talks to direct it, Craig Bolotin adapting the screenplay with Britt Robertson as Sophia Danko, Oona Chaplin as Ruth, and Scott Eastwood as Luke Collins, Jack Huston as Young Ira and, Alan Alda cast in an undisclosed role.[1][2][3][4][5]


Filming began on June 16, 2014, in Wilmington and Winston-Salem, North Carolina.[6][7][8] On July 28, filming started in Jacksonville where a major rodeo scene was also set be shot, which the crew decided to instead shoot that part in Winston-Salem at the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum.[9][10]
