It Ends With Us Synopsis
Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own Flower business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true. As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan — her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.
On 27th of January 2023, It was announced that Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni have been attached to star in the film adaptation of Colleen Hoover’s bestselling novel It Ends With Us, which is in development with Wayfarer Studios and Sony Pictures. Baldoni is also set to direct, with Christy Hall adapting the script.
Midway through 2019, Justin Baldoni announced on Instagram that his movie business, Wayfarer Entertainment, will adapt the novel It Ends With Us into a film.
He stated as follows:
So excited to be working with the brilliant @colleenhoover to try bring #ItEndsWithUs to the big screen!!! I’m so passionate about this book and so honored she chose me to help bring it to the world. Thank you to my wonderful book agent @jcastillobooks for connecting us! ***Link in my bio to get the book*** ———***trigger warning: domestic violence/ toxic relationship****
Previously, Baldoni directed the film adaptation of Five Feet Apart. The first draft screenplay for the It Ends With Us movie was completed in September 2021. This was announced by Baldoni with an online video.
In July 2022, Collen Hoover took to her Instagram to share her excitement about the movie’s script.
It Ends With Us is becoming a movie. I know I’ve said that before, but with a little doubt in my heart, because it’s always a scary thing relying on Hollywood. But after meeting with @justinbaldoni and his amazing @wayfarerstudios team today and seeing how much effort they’ve put into this script and into WANTING to give readers what they want, I’m confident you are all going to be very happy. I would post more pics, but when you’re sitting in a room of creatives, listening to them discuss scenes and characters in a lively way that you developed all alone from your own head, it’s hard to break out of that trance and take pictures. I hope I remember and appreciate today well past eternity if that time and place exists. ❤️
