"The Twilight Saga" producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey are set to produce an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' latest novel "The Longest Ride" at Fox 2000.

Craig Bolotin ("Black Rain," "Straight Talk") has been tapped to pen the adaptation. The story follows two storylines that ultimately converge.

The first involves an elderly man trapped in a car accident. While fighting to remain conscious, he sees visions of his deceased wife and their life together.

The second follows a high school senior who meets a young bull rider with a secret. The book hits stores next month.

Fox picked up the rights to the title in February.
