by     Posted 18 hours ago


Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and New Line Cinema have released the first If I Stay trailer for director R.J. Cutler’s (Nashville) drama.  Based on the Gayle Forman novel of the same name, the film stars Chloe Grace Moretz as a young girl facing a tough decision between pursuing her musical dreams at Julliard or staying close to home with the love of her life (Jamie Blackley).  Circumstances are further complicated when a life-changing accident throws her life off completely off balance.  I’m not familiar with the novel, but it’s easy to see why the story’s central relationship is so beloved among readers, and this trailer suggests that the filmmakers have obviously taken great pains to bring that bond to the screen in as honest a way as possible.

Hit the jump to watch the If I Stay trailer.  The film also stars Mireille Enos, Joshua Leonard, Liana Liberato, Aisha Hinds, and Stacy KeachIf I Stay opens in theaters August 22nd.

Just about two weeks ago, we reported that Rosemarie DeWitt (Cinderella Man) was in talks to lead MGM and Fox 2000′s Poltergeist reboot.  Now, it looks like Sam Rockwell (Moon) is in early talks to star opposite DeWitt.  Officially described as “a revisionist take” on Tobe Hooper’s 1982 original film, it centers on the Bowens, “a family struggling to make ends meet that relocates to an outdated suburban home and is confronted by an angry spirit who kidnaps their youngest daughter Madison and challenges them to band together to rescue her from the clutches of evil.”  Produced by Sam Raimi (Spider-Man) and directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House), the Poltergeist reboot was scripted by David Lindsay-Abaire (Oz the Great and Powerful) and is likely due out sometime next year.  Hit the jump for more.

Chloe Moretz Attached to Star in YA Adaptation IF I STAY; RJ Cutler to Direct

2009: Catherine Hardwicke is set to direct the adaptation of Gayle Forman‘s young adult novel If I Stay.  2010: Hardwicke is out, Heitor Dhalia is in as director.  Dakota Fanning enters talks to star as Mia, an accomplished 17-year-old cellist destined for Julliard before a car accident sends her into a coma.  2013: Dhalia and Fanning are no longer on board.  Instead, Chloe Moretz is attached to star and RJ Cutler (Nashville) is in talks to direct his first narrative feature, according to Variety.

The book has a neat hook, using the out-of-body perspective and recollections of Mia while she’s in the coma.  I don’t know if this is the iteration that will push If I Stay out of development, but keep your eye out for more casting announcements soon—particularly the “punk rock boyfriend.”  Read the book synopsis after the jump.
