One of our favourite viral TikTok novels is without a doubt – It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover. Now, we know that there is a movie adaptation of It Ends With Us in the works. Here, we break down everything we know so far about the adaptation.
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover is one of the most popular books on TikTok. Teased on Instagram, the novel now has a movie adaptation in the works. It Ends With Us is about Lily, a woman who grew up in small town in Maine and who now lives in Boston. She sparks with the stunning neurosurgeon, Ryle Kincaid, but can’t stop thinking about her first love, Atlas Corrigan. Atlas suddenly reappears in her life, leaving her to question the relationship she’s built with Ryle and just how healthy it may be. Colleen Hoover has described the book as “hardest book I’ve ever written,” given that the abusive relationship it displays between Ryle and Lily is based on her own parents’ relationship.
The novel is planned as a movie adaptation and will be developed by Justin Baldoni’s company Wayfarer Entertainment. The project is currently in development and the first draft screenplay was finished around September 2021, as Baldoni announced on Instagram.
In 2023, it was announced that Blake Lively will star in the leading role as Lily Bloom, alongside Justin Baldoni as Ryle.
