In the Works: 'If I Stay,' Ya Thriller Starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Heads Into Production
MGM has put its chips on Chloe Grace Moretz, despite "Carrie" not scaring up much box office over the past couple of weeks. Production begins October 30 on “If I Stay," adapted from Gayle Forman's bestselling Ya novel, starring Moretz and Jamie Blackley (“Snow White and The Huntsmen”).R.J. Cutler ("The September Issue," “Nashville”) is directing. The cast also includes Mireille Enos (“The Killing,” "World War Z") and Stacy Keach (“Nebraska”). The official synopsis (below) is fairly inscrutable, but the novel apparently centers on a teen girl, Mia, thrown into a coma following a horrific car accident. While in the coma, Mia has an out-of-body experience, where she watches her loved ones gather at the hospital, and is confronted with the choice to wake up or die.The film follows Mia (Moretz), who at age 16 has everything: a loving family, an adoring boyfriend, and a bright future full of music.
