Zac Efron In 'The Lucky One' Poster (PHOTO)

Have you been missing Zac Efron? Don't worry; the teen icon is back.

Well, in about five months, anyway. But here's a first taste of what is sure to be an emotional return; he is, after all, starring in a Nicholas Sparks adaptation.

Efron plays an Iraq War Vet in "The Lucky One," which is why you've seen him all buffed up at awards shows over the past year or so. Co-starring is Taylor Schilling as the smiling woman in a photograph he kept with him throughout the war, inspiring him to both survive in combat and to find her once he returns home.

If you think you recognize this poster, you're not crazy; it does have a strong resemblance to another Sparks adaptation, "The Notebook." See below for proof.
