Author Colleen Hoover’s bestselling romance novel It Ends with Us is getting a film adaptation with actors Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni attached to star in it. The film is in development at Sony Pictures, with Baldoni set to direct and executive produce under his Wayfarer Studios banner, which is co-financing. Lively is also executive producing alongside Hoover, Steve Sarowitz and Andrew Calof.
Christy Hall of I Am Not Okay with This fame penned the current screenplay and is also set to produce. It Ends With Us follows small-town girl Lily, who moves to Boston to start her own business. Sparks immediately fly between her and neurosurgeon Ryle, but his “complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his ‘no dating’ rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place. As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan — her first love. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened,” the book’s description reads.
