Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson pitch 'The Longest Ride' to Clint Eastwood and more

Posted on

Luke (Scott Eastwood) and Sophia (Britt Robertson) are the definition of opposites attract in The Longest Ride, the latest book-to-film adaptation from author Nicholas Sparks. Luke is a fearless former champion bull rider who introduces the art-loving Sophia to a dangerous world she never imagined herself falling into.

The duo think audiences would love to see The Longest Ride, including Eastwood’s Oscar-winning father, Clint Eastwood (for Alan Alda, obviously). Watch the two pitch the film to Scott’s dad, a skeptical father of two teenage girls, and even a crime novelist with writer’s block who Eastwood thinks could take a cue from The Longest Ride.

“Well, this is a well-written film, so he might want to take lessons,” Eastwood says.
