The TikTok book sensation It Ends With Us is getting turned into a movie. While the news is early, there is some information about the casting and possible release date for fans of the book.
Here is what you need to know about the movie version of It Ends With Us, based on Colleen Hoover’s novel.
What is It Ends With Us about?
It Ends With Us is a novel by Colleen Hoover that became a best-seller thanks to it becoming a viral sensation on TikTok. The book is about systematic abuse and how it can go from generation to generation. The book follows Lily Blossom Bloom, a woman who watched her father abuse her mother for years.
However, when Lily grows up, she ends up married to a man who also abuses her. This is surgeon, Ryle Kincaid. However, things take a turn for the better when a childhood friend named Atlas comes back into her life and reminds her that there is a healthy kind of love.
With that said, the book remains controversial because this is a book that doesn’t hold back and is for mature audiences only. It contains sexual content and erotic descriptions of sexual content. The book is also graphic when it comes to violence against women.
It Ends With Us movie updates
After It Ends With Us hit it big thanks to TikTok (2 billion views), Jane the Virgin actor Justin Baldoni optioned the book to produce the movie through his company. Justin began working on the script in 2021 and in 2023 he announced that he will direct the movie. Baldoni has previously directed the movies Clouds and Five Feet Apart. Author Hoover will consult on the movie.
The biggest news is in the casting. Blake Lively has signed on to play Lily in the movie. Baldoni has also signed on to co-star in the movie, playing the abusive Ryle. Lively broke out thanks to her role in Gossip Girl. She made her own directorial debut in Taylor Swift’s 2021 music video for “I Bet You Think About Me.” That won her two ACM Award nominations.
Blake took to her Instagram Stories right after the announcement and showed off her new darker hair – likely for the role.
Hoover is also very happy that Blake Lively is playing the role, saying in a TikTok video that it was “my dream Lily.”
It Ends With Us release date
It Ends With Us has not started filming yet. This means there is no word on a release date. There is still casting to be completed, which means that the actual shoot won’t come until at least later in 2023.
There is a good chance that it could get a release window sometime in 2024 as long as there are no delays. Whether this is a theatrical release or a Netflix release is to be determined. Balsoni’s Five Feet Apart got a theatrical release from CBS Films in 2019.
