Summit + Hardwicke again?


'Twilight' director Catherine Hardwicke in talks for young-adult film 'If I Stay'
Summit Entertainment is trying to make lightning strike twice. The studio behind
the Twilight movie series has plans to adapt a buzzy young-adult novel called If
I Stay with Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke at the helm, EW has learned
exclusively. The studio would not confirm the plan; a Summit insider said the
parties are negotiating and a deal is not yet complete.
The book, from author/journalist Gayle Forman (Sisters in Sanity), doesn't hit shelves until April 1 but was scooped up by Summit last month. The project centers on 17-year old musician Mia who, after a violent car accident, finds herself watching her damaged body taken from the wreck. She must decide whether or not she has the will to live.
It's interesting that Hardwicke and Summit would team up again
considering how the two parted ways after Twilight became a massive worldwide
box office success. This reunion suggests that rumors of discord between the
director and her studio may have been greatly exaggerated.
Looks like an interesting read, I'm intrigued - I must find out more about this book :)
