Walk to Remember, A : Press Release


Starring US pop sensation Mandy Moore (The Princess Diaries, MTV's Total Request Live) alongside heart-throb actor Shane West (Get Over It, Liberty Heights, ABC's series Once and Again)

A WALK TO REMEMBER an inspiring coming of age love story, will open throughout the UK on 13th September 2002.

Jamie Sullivan (Moore) was the last person that popular super-cool Landon Carter (West) was likely to fall for. Jamie was as far from 'A List' as she could possibly get especially in contrast to Landon, a main player in the in-crowd who breezed through school on looks, charisma and popularity. Feelings for each other soon change however when they repeatedly spend time together and as a result alter their lives foreverů

Mandy Moore picked up an award for Best Breakthrough Performance for her role in the film at the MTV Movie Awards in June. She is a multi-talented and multi-platinum artist who writes and sings her own original songs. Moore has toured with N Sync and the Backstreet Boys and sings several of the tracks on the soundtrack which accompanies the film.

A WALK TO REMEMBER which is based on the Nicholas Sparks novel, also stars Daryl Hannah (Dancing at the Blue Iguana, Splash, Steel Magnolias) as Landon's mother, Peter Coyote (ET, Femme Fatale) who takes the role of Jamie's father, and amongst others Lauren German (Down To You) who plays Landon's ex-girlfriend. Directed by Adam Shankman (The Wedding Singer), from a screenplay by Karen Janszen, A WALK TO REMEMBER is produced by Denise Di Novi and Hunt Lowry. E. K. Gaylord II, Bill Johnson, Casey La Scala and Edward L. McDonnell serve as executive producers.

Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Pandora, a Di Novi Pictures Production which will be released throughout the UK by Helkon SK Film Distribution
