Dakota Fanning photo /Dakota Fanning could possibly be starring in Summit Entertainment's adaptation of Gayle Forman's young adult novel, If I Stay, according to Variety. At one point Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke was on board to direct, however she left the project to helm Red Riding Hood for Warner Bros. Summit then brought on Heitor Dhalia to take on the supernatural tale.

Other than The Runaways and Coraline, Fanning's most recently projects have all been set up at Summit. Fanning starred in the action drama Push for the studio in 2009, followed by the Twilight films New Moon and Eclipse. And she'll soon be reprising her role as 'Jane' in the Twilight series when Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2 get underway.

So what's If I Stay about? From the book's official site: "In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen-year- old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck... A sophisticated, layered, and heartachingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make--and the ultimate choice Mia commands."
