Zac Efron's character searches for his lucky charm in The Lucky One

Warner Bros. brings Nicholas Sparks' bestseller  The Lucky One  to the big screen starring Zac Efron ( CharlieSt. Cloud, New Year’s Eve ) and Taylor Schilling (upcoming  Argo ). The passionate, romantic drama is directed by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks ( Shine, No Reservations ).
