Summit Asks Hardwicke To “Stay”

Catherine Hardwicke and distributor Summit Entertainment seem to have buried the hatchet with the “Twilight” director signing on to helm Summit’s fantasy-drama “If I Stay” reports Variety.

Based on Gayle Forman’s novel of the same name, the story centers on a gifted classical musician and her indie rockstar boyfriend who’s forced to choose between life and death when she’s in a car accident with her family.

Earlier this week Hardwicke was in talks to develop and direct a film adaptation of James Patterson’s young-adult fantasy series “Maximum Ride” for Sony Pictures.
