Alex Garland, a long-time friend of Kazuo Ishiguro, asked the author for the rights to the novel before he had finished reading it. Before the novel was published in 2005, Garland had already written a script for a possible film. The script for the film was 96 pages long, done in chapters. He gave the screenplay to two producers, Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich, and development started at that moment. Director Mark Romanek was originally attached to The WolfMan, but when he was dropped from that production for an unknown reason, he accepted the offer to work on Never Let Me Go. Romanek was glad to get the opportunity to shoot this film: “From the moment I finished [reading] the novel, it became my dream to film it. Ishiguro’s conception is so daring, so eerie and beautiful. Alex Garland’s adaptation is sensitive and precise. The cast is perfect, the crew superb.”
