Cutler directed drama, based on Forman's novel

Warner Bros. has come on board to handle worldwide distribution for MGM on “If I Stay,” starring Chloe Moretz (pictured above).

RJ Cutler directed the film, based on Gayle Forman’s 2009 novel about a 16-year-old who has an out-of-body experience following a car accident that puts her in a coma and kills the rest of her family. Screenplay was written by Shauna Cross (“Whip It”), Marc Silverstein & Abby Kohn (“The Vow”) and Cutler.

Alison Greenspan of Di Novi Pictures is producing, with Denise Di Novi, Forman and Brad Van Arragon exec producing. Mireille Enos, Jamie Blackley, Stacy Keach, Liana Liberato and Joshua Leonard also star.

The project had originally been developed at Summit.

Moretz starred in MGM’s “Carrie,” which was distributed through Sony’s Screen Gems in the fall.
