Summit Entertainment has approached Dakota Fanning to star in If I Stay, their upcoming supernatural film, Variety reports. The project is based on the young adult novel of the same name by Gayle Forman, about a girl who is forced to choose between life and death after a car accident leaves her comatose. Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke was originally attached to the project before dropping out to helm Red Riding Hood. Forman’s sequel to her YA hit, titled Where She Went, is set to hit stores in April 2011.
