Blake Lively has been cast as the lead role in the It Ends With Us adaptation
Colleen Hoover fans prepare yourself - It Ends With Us is officially getting made into a movie. We know, we're still screaming too. And possibly the best part of this news? Blake Lively has been cast as Lily.
It Ends With Us was the book of TikTok of last year, with over 2 billion views associated with the book's hashtag and plenty of celeb fans including Kylie Jenner.
And now that it's going to be made into a film, this is everything you need to know about the It Ends With Us adaptation.
What is It Ends With Us about?
It Ends With Us will be an adaption of the novel of the same name, by BookTok's favourite author Colleen Hoover.
The novel was released in 2016 and has since sold over one million copies, thanks in part to its popularity on TikTok. The story is inspired by the relationship between Hoover's own mother and father, and she's previously described it as "the hardest book I've ever written".
The novel is centred around Lily, a college graduate who moves to Boston in the hope of opening up her own flower shop. There, she falls in love with neurosurgeon Ryle, whilst also grappling with the memories of her past love Atlas, and coming to terms with the abuse in her parent's relationship.
But when Atlas suddenly reappears, Lily's entire life with Ryle is threatened.
Whilst we don't know how close to the book the film will be, we're hoping it's going to be as faithful an adaptation as possible.
