Dakota Fanning is currently in talks to star in If I Stay, the upcoming movie based on Gayle Forman's novel.

According to ComingSoon, the film will be directed by Heitor Dhalia, as original director Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) pulled out of the project to work on Red Riding Hood. Denise Di Novi will be producing.

Gayle Forman's novel was released last year and focuses on classical musician Mia, who's forced to choose between life and death when she's caught in a fatal car accident. Read on for the book synopsis...

'Just listen,' Adam says with a voice that sounds like shrapnel. I open my eyes wide now. I sit up as much as I can. And I listen. 'Stay,' he says. Everybody has to make choices. Some might break you. For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they're all about a future full of music and love, a future that's brimming with hope. But life can change in an instant. A cold February morning . . . a snowy road . . . and suddenly all of Mia's choices are gone. Except one. As alone as she'll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all. Gripping, heartrending and ultimately life-affirming, If I Stay will make you appreciate all that you have, all that you've lost - and all that might be.
