RJ Cutler, Chloe Moretz to ‘Stay’ for Summit

'Nashville' producer in talks to direct supernatural pic for Summit

After years of helming documentaries and TV shows, R.J. Cutler is closing in on his first narrative feature directing gig: Summit Entertainment’s “If I Stay.”

Denise DiNovi and Alison Greenspan of DiNovi Pictures will produce, with Lionsgate production prexy Erik Feig and senior veep Gillian Bohrer overseeing the project for the studio.

Based on Gayle Forman’s 2009 novel, “If I Stay” revolves around the relationship between a femme classical musician and her indie rock-star boyfriend.
