What’s it about? What’s the plot of It Ends With Us?

It Ends With Us is about Lily, a woman who grew up in small town in Maine and who has worked hard to get where she is now. She graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business.

So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true. However, a part of her can’t stop thinking about her first love, Atlas Corrigan. Then, Atlas suddenly reappears in her life, leaving her to question the relationship she’s built with Ryle.

It Ends With Us was originally published in August 2016. Author Colleen Hoover has previously stated that this book was based on the relationship between her mother and father and that it was the “hardest book I’ve ever written”.

No casting details have been released yet.

See the full cast (when available) on IMDB.

When will it be released?

Currently unknown. Given that the screenplay is complete as of the end of 2021, but still in draft form, 2022 seems unlikely. My guess is that the earliest we’d see this is sometime in 2023.
