Chloe Moretz shared the above photo on her Instagram, along with the caption: “And it’s starts”! Her character Mia in the upcoming adaptation of If I Stay by Gayle Forman is very musically gifted, and plays the cello, so now Chloe must learn how to play the instrument for the film. The movie will be directed by RJ Cutler, and casting for the male lead is currently underway.

Plot Synopsis: The story follows 17-year-old Mia as she deals with the aftermath of a catastrophic car accident involving her family. In a coma, Mia has an out-of-body experience, and watches as friends and family gather at the hospital where she is being treated. Mia watches as her memories flash before her eyes as she comes to realize that she must decide if she is to wake up and lead a life far more difficult than she ever anticipated, or to slip away and die.
