I’m not sure if this movie is for us. As of right now it’s just barely straddling the line, but let’s see how it all shakes out and then we’ll decide if we keep covering it once more info comes in, cool? Per Variety, R.J. Cutler (“Nashville”, Sundance doc “The World According To Dick Cheney“) is in talks to direct his first narrative feature, and it’s a whopper. He’ll likely be helming Summit Entertainment’s new thriller If I Stay, which is a supernatural pic with Chloe Moretz (Let Me In, Carrie) attached.
The film will be based on Gayle Forman’s novel which, “ follows 17-year-old Mia as she deals with the aftermath of a catastrophic car accident involving her family. In a coma, Mia has an out-of-body experience, and watches as friends and family gather at the hospital where she is being treated. Mia watches as her memories flash before her eyes as she comes to realize that she must decide if she is to wake up and lead a life far more difficult than she ever anticipated, or to slip away and die.”
Sounds like it’s very much in the Moretz wheelhouse.
