James Marsden has been offered the late Paul Walker's lead role in the upcoming film The Best of Me, Deadline reports. The movie is an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel, and Source Code actress Michelle Monaghan co-stars.

In typical Sparks fashion, the book sees two former high school sweethearts reunite after 20 years apart. Both attend the funeral of a mutual friend and discover they still have feelings for each other.

Walker, who perished in a car wreck at the end of November, was also set to star in Agent 47, and Homeland actor Rupert Friend has since been cast to replace him.
