The next time a Nicholas Sparks movie hits the silver screen, expect it to be frosty.

That’s because Safe Haven, the author’s chilling love story, is set to hit theaters the week before Valentine’s Day.

"Usually, Nicholas Sparks movies tend to be strictly romance novels-slash-movies," says Julianne Hough, who stars as Katie Feldman, a secretive woman on the run who lands in the sleepy town of Southport, N.C. "What’s fun about Safe Haven is it’s got a thriller aspect to it."
