It Ends with Us by Colleen Hoover is getting a starry film adaptation.

The best-selling novel became a sensation with help from TikTok and social media influencers and is now getting the Hollywood treatment from Sony Pictures, Deadline revealed, before it was confirmed by author Hoover herself on Instagram.

The book follows the resilient Lily as she finds a romance with neurosurgeon Dr Ryle Kincaid, who the official synopsis notes is "assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant" but also "sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily".

However, Ryle is noted to have an aversion to relationships which is "disturbing" and Lily tries to get to the root of Ryle's issues.

The synopsis also notes: "As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan – her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened."

So, with all this drama in one novel (and with more to spill over into future instalments), when will the movie adaptation of the bestseller It Ends with Us be released and who stars in it?

When will the It Ends with Us movie adaptation be released?

It Ends with Us does not currently have a confirmed release date.

However, given that the film will need likely the best part of two years to turn around then we can see it being released in 2024 at the earliest.

We shall have to wait and see but we will keep you updated as soon as we know more.
