It Ends with Us movie cast released


Life & Style

In a Jan. 27 Instagram video, superstar author Colleen Hoover revealed Blake Lively and Jane the Virgin star Justin Baldoni will play Lily Bloom and Ryle Kincaid in a big screen adaptation of Hoover’s bestseller It Ends With Us.

“Blake Lively, y’all!” said Hoover. “She’s my dream Lily. Then, when I first met Justin Baldoni […] I immediately wanted him to be Ryle. I just thought that he had what it takes to play that character […] So we have our Ryle and our Lily.”

Despite Hoover’s apparent dream casting being set into motion, some fans are disappointed and wish that Hoover went along with “Book Tok’s” popular demands. 

“We were robbed from the perfect cast,” said fan Alex Candelier. Her viral Tik Tok video showed her dream cast for the movie, with celebrity appearances such as Sadie Sink, Abigail Cowen, and Theo James.

“I love Blake [Lively],” said Karly, another fan on Tik Tok. “She’s probably one of my favorite actresses […] But, for the role of Lily, I’m unsure if that is a good fit because all I can picture Blake Lively being is Verity.” 

Sony Pictures and Wayfarer studios will release the film. A release date has yet to be set for the adaptation.
