On May 4th, Readers shared updates from their buildings in Hoboken with us — with one building’s notification sharing details about the film shoot at the Hudson Tea buildings. As it turns out, this film crew is actually for a movie called “Relay,” which will star Lily James, Sam Worthington, and Riz Ahmed, per Deadline.

However, Colleen Hoover’s novel-turned-film ‘It Ends With Us’ started filming in Hoboken on 10th + Bloomfield, with the project originally wrapping up its Hoboken set on Friday, May 12th, though now the project has been extended until this Thursday, May 18th. See the most current signage from the crew below.

On May 12th, Patch reported that Hoboken’s Field Colony art gallery was transformed into “Maya + Maxim, a homey-looking shop” on Thursday, May 11th. In the novel, the protagonist Lily opens a flower shop called Lily’s Blooms — while we’re unclear what role Maya + Maxim will play in the movie, we’re excited to find out.

Patch also reported that after the film’s Hoboken stint, the crew will be headed to Chatham, New Jersey, next week, though the production is headquartered in Jersey City.

The book follows a girl named Lily who has just moved and is ready to start her life after college. Lily then meets Ryle, falling for him. As she is developing feelings for Ryle, Atlas, her first love, reappears and challenges the relationship between Lily and Ryle.

The motion picture has been filming in Hoboken this week, and stars Blake Lively and Justin Baldoni.

“The fact that we are now discussing a movie that’s made from a book that was loosely inspired by my mother is bittersweet,” Hoover said. “Anyway, didn’t mean for this to turn into a sobfest. Our Lily is going to be played by Blake Lively. Blake Lively, y’all. She’s my dream Lily,” Colleen shared on her Instagram.

Regarding Justin Baldoni’s casting, she explained, “I just thought that he had what it takes to play that character,” she said. “The good news is he’s gonna be Ryle. So we have our Ryle and our Lily.”

“I think that Justin Baldoni and Blake Lively have what it takes to bring these characters to life,” Hoover added after revealing the two as being cast for the roles.
