Monaghan cast in The Best Of Me

Michelle Monaghan is to star in a film adaptation of author Nicholas Sparks's new book.

The Mission Impossible actress has been cast in The Best Of Me, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The book, which was released this year, follows a pair of former high school sweethearts who are reunited when they both return to their hometown.

So far it isn't known who will star opposite Michelle in the film, which will be directed by Michael Hoffman.

The Best Of Me will be the ninth of the author's books to be adapted for the big screen, following other films such as The Notebook, The Last Song and Safe Haven.

Michelle, 37, has several movies coming up including drama Fort Bliss and comedies Better Living Through Chemistry and A Many Splintered Thing.

Last month it was announced she had landed one of the lead roles in Glee creator Ryan Murphy's new television show, Open.
