TikTok sensation Colleen Hoover releases hit after hit. One of her greatest hits is none other than It Ends with Us, a highly-lauded contemporary romance that went on to win the 2016 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Romance. 

With its legions of devoted fans and rising fame on BookTok, Hoover’s work experienced a surge in popularity that skyrocketed sales, with over four million copies sold, and earned it a spot on the New York Times bestseller list for months on end.

The TikTok phenomenon continues to break new records with current releases like It Starts with Us, the sequel to It Ends with Us. Now her number-one novel, It Ends with Us, is being taken to all new heights with its upcoming movie adaptation. 

What is the premise of Colleen Hoover’s bestselling novel It Ends with Us?

The same day Lily Bloom delivers her father’s eulogy, she hightails it out of her hometown in Maine to the bustling city of Boston. There, she jumps on starting her own business and meets Ryle Kincaid, a gorgeous neurosurgeon that has her falling head over heels and breaking all of her rules. Sparks fly and their connection evolves into something far more intense than they ever saw coming.

Things take an unexpected turn when her first love Atlas Corrigan re-enters her life and threatens everything Lily and Ryle have built.

Who is cast in the movie adaptation of It Ends with Us?

On January 26th, Hoover announced on Instagram that Blake Lively will step into the shoes of Lily Bloom and Justin Baldoni will bring Ryle Kincaid to life.

Best known for her popular portrayal of Serena van der Woodsen in Gossip Girl and her roles in The Age of Adeline (2015), The Shallows (2016), and A Simple Favor (2018), Lively is the perfect choice to breathe life into Lily Bloom.

Justin Baldoni is developing the movie adaptation of It Ends with Us through his production company, Wayfarer Entertainment, and will star in the film alongside Lively. Best known for his role as Rafael Solano on the CW show Jane the Virgin and his directorial debut of Five Feet Apart and his following work Clouds, Baldoni is the perfect person to bring Hoover’s work to life on the big screen and take on the complex role of Ryle Kincaid.

When is the release date of It Ends with Us

As of July 29th, the script appears to be in the final stages. Baldoni went to Instagram and wrote, “A huge thank you to the thousands of LA area fans of It Ends With Us for submitting and for the ten we chose to join us for the special reading of the script. Your feedback and support was incredible! We are one step closer to making this movie thanks to you! We are beyond excited! More to come!” 

With that in mind, a late 2023 or early 2024 release seems likely.
