By  |  1 Comment


Production is set to begin today on IF I STAY for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM), starring Chloë Grace Moretz (“Carrie”) as Mia and Jamie Blackley (“Snow White and The Huntsmen”) as Adam, with R.J. Cutler (“Nashville”) directing.

The film follows Mia (Moretz), who at age 16 has everything: a loving family, an adoring boyfriend, and a bright future full of music. Suddenly, a family drive on a snowy day changes everything. In an instant, almost all of that is taken from her. Caught between life and death, Mia spends one critical day contemplating her destiny, which is now more unknowable than ever. Is her soul mate’s love enough to keep her here? Tragic but ultimately hopeful, this is a romantic, riveting and uplifting story about music, life and love.

The film also stars Mireille Enos (“The Killing”) as Mia’s mother Kat, Stacy Keach (“Nebraska”) as Gramps, Liana Liberato (“Trust”) as Kim, and Joshua Leonard (“The Town That Dreaded Sundown”) as Mia’s dad, Denny.

Based on Gayle Forman’s best-selling young adult novel, the screenplay is by Shauna Cross (“Whip It”), Marc Silverstein & Abby Kohn (“The Vow”) and Cutler. Alison Greenspan (“The Lucky One”) for DiNovi Pictures is producing. Denise DiNovi (“Crazy, Stupid, Love”) and Forman will serve as executive producers along with Brad Van Arragon (“Juno”).

Collaborating with Cutler is a creative team led by director of photography John de Borman (“An Education”), production designer Brent Thomas (“Dreamer”), costume designer Monique Prudhomme (“Juno”) and editor Keith Henderson (“Dexter”). Filming will take place in Vancouver.
