According to Deadline, the upcoming film adaptation of It Ends with Us has added Jenny Slate to the star-studded cast. Slate is confirmed to play Alyssa, Ryle’s younger sister (Ryle will be played by Justin Baldoni). Blake Lively is already set to star as Lily, with Brandon Sklenar set to play Atlas Corrigan. Baldoni will direct and executive produce It Ends with Us, with additional executive producers Lively and Hoover, as well as Steve Sarowitz and Andrew Calof.
Based on the bestselling novel by Colleen Hoover, It Ends with Us follows Lily Bloom, a woman who relocates from small-town Maine to Boston to start her own business. Though she’s faced troubles along the way, Lily knows what she wants from life and sets out to get it. Enter Ryle Kincaid, a neurosurgeon who seems like the perfect match for Lily. However, Ryle is averse to relationships, further complicating things. Lily and Ryle’s romance only continues to face obstacles when Lily’s old flame Atlas enters the picture, putting her relationship with Ryle at risk.
