BookTok Can’t Calm Down Over Blake Lively’s Next Movie Role – E! Online

Blake Lively is entering the world of Colleen Hoover.

The actress, 35, will star in the movie adaptation of the best-selling romance novel It Ends With Us, E! News confirms. She’ll act alongside Jane the Virgin‘s Justin Baldoni, who is also directing the film.

As for the behind-the-scenes team, both actors and the author will have creative say as executive producers on It Ends With Us. Other producers include Alex Saks (The Florida Project) and Christy Hall (I Am Not Okay With This), who is writing the script, per a press release from Wayfarer Studios and Sony Pictures.

Blake and Justin are expected to play redheaded florist Lily Bloom and doctor Ryle Kincaid, respectively, with Colleen announcing earlier in the day that she was preparing to reveal those characters’ castings. The actor playing Lily’s first love Atlas has not been revealed.

“Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants,” reads the book synopsis. “She’s come a long way from the small town where she grew up—she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. And when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life seems too good to be true.”

Source link Book Tok, the popular social media platform used to discuss and share book reviews, has been abuzz recently due to Blake Lively’s upcoming movie role.

Lively is set to star in “The Husband’s Secret,” a psychological thriller about a woman struggling to remain faithful to her husband after reading a letter that contains a devastating secret. The role marks Lively’s return to the big screen after years of focusing on her family life.

BookTok users are abuzz over what they consider to be a perfect role for Lively. Many fans feel that the indie-flick vibes of the project perfectly align with Lively’s style and cite her character in “The Age of Adaline,” another romantic drama, as evidence of her incredible acting abilities.

BookTokers have especially praised Lively’s decision to take on a more challenging role, especially after she had previously steared clear of darker stories. This is seen as a major move forward for her career, and the hashtag # BlakeLivelyIsComingBack is trending on the platform.

Others have discussed the importance of female lead roles, especially ones written by female authors. The book, written by best-selling Australian author Liane Moriarty, is sure to bring refreshing female representation to the screen.

What is clear is that regardless of how the movie turns out, BookTok loves Blake Lively, and can’t wait for her to light up the big screen once again.
