‘It Ends With Us’ casting
Blake, who is also the executive producer of the film, will be playing the lead role of Lily Bloom whereas Justin Baldoni, in the character of Ryle Kincaid, will be starring as her love interest.Back in 2023, Colleen faced backlash for her casting choices as the actors are much older than the characters portrayed in the novel.

Speaking with Today, the 44-year-old author admitted that her portrayal of characters at a younger age was “a mistake.”

“Back when I wrote It Ends With Us, the new adult (genre) was very popular. You were writing college-age characters. That’s what I was contracted to do. I didn’t know that neurosurgeons went to school for 50 years. As I started making this movie, I’m like, ‘We need to age them out because I messed up.’ So that’s my fault,” she explained.
