If I Stay

Film adaptation

After the book became extremely well received, Forman decided to collaborate with Summit Entertainment to bring the novel to the big screen. In December 2010, it was announced that a film was in the works, in which Dakota Fanning, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Emily Browning were in talks to play Mia.[8] Chloë Grace Moretz eventually ended up securing the role on January 24, 2013. Catherine Hardwicke, director of the first Twilight movie, was originally set to direct the film adaptation, but she was eventually replaced by Brazilian filmmaker Heitor Dhalia,[9] who also left the film later. On January 24, 2013, R.J. Cutler was announced as the new director of the film.[10] On January 2014, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and Warner Bros. Pictures was announced to distribute the film and released on August 22, 2014.[11] The film ended up bringing in about $15.6 million into box offices.
