Fans of John Green, get excited! The author’s novel, Paper Towns, is set to follow in the footsteps of The Fault In Our Stars by getting the big screen treatment.
According to Deadline, Fox 2000 has closed a deal to bring Green’s book to life with the team that is bringing TFiOS to the big screen. Nat Wolff, who plays Isaac in TFiOS, would take on the lead role in Paper Towns with Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber adapting the script and Temple Hill’s Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen are producing.
Paper Towns takes place in Orlando where the protagonist is Quentin, a young man who shared a jarring experience with his neighbor Margo: They found a man who committed suicide. They grew apart, but one night he finds her at his bedroom window, dressed like a ninja. She enlists him in a campaign to get revenge on people who’ve hurt her. Next day, she vanishes as he is left to ponder the ramifications of the evening. Then he begins getting clues from her and has to follow them.
Nat & John took to twitter to share their excitement:
