New Line Cinema is setting up a movie adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' book "Dear John" with Channing Tatum being plotted as the lead.

Continues to give special attention to Nicholas Sparks' works, New Line Cinema is on the move to develop "Dear John", a big screen adaptation of another bestseller novel of the author which was published in October last year.

Set to be a touching drama feature, the project revolves around a soldier who falls hard for a gorgeous but conservative college student yet later sadly finds out that time and distance have taken a toll on their commitment to each other. No word yet on who will write or direct, but it is learned that Channing Tatum has been attached to star in.

New Line previously scored a sleeper hit with "The Notebook", which was also based on Sparks' book of the same name, when the movie surprisingly pulled over $115 million worldwide following its release on June 25, 2004. The studio currently is getting underway with Village Roadshow on "Nights in Rodanthe", another film adaptation of Sparks' novel of the same title.
