The sun rises, the sun sets—and another Nicholas Sparks book is being turned into a movie. This time it's "The Best Of Me." Michelle Monaghan has booked a leading role in the flick, which follows a pair of middle-aged former flames, now leading different lives, who rekindle their young romance when a funeral in their hometown brings them together. AWW. Michael Hoffman ("The Last Station," "One Fine Day," "The Emperor's Club") is directing the film, which has a home at Relativity. Tell your Mom this is happening, she'll be thrilled. [THR]

From barely tolerable, to "Barely Lethal," the Hailee Steinfeld-starring action comedy is bolstering its cast. "The Kings Of Summer" star Gabriel Basso has joined the movie about "a 16-year-old assassin who fakes her own death in pursuit of a normal adolescence." Basso has the best friend role and joins the already cast Jessica Alba and Sophie Turner in the Kyle Newman ("Fanboys")-directed film. Brett Ratner produces. [The Wrap]

Lastly, one talented and attractive actress has been replaced for another talented and attractive actress in the horror "Incarnate." Catalina Sandino Moreno ("Maria Full Of Grace," "The Bridge") replaces Rosario Dawson in the Aaron Eckhart-starring micro-budget horror, which will follow "an unconventional exorcist—with the ability to tap into the subconscious of the possessed—who meets his match when a 9-year-old boy is possessed by a demon from his past." Brad Peyton directs, production starts in November. [THR
