Sarah Polley as Screenwriter and Director for Looking For Alaska Movie!

With The Fault in our Stars movie crossing the 100 million dollar mark, John Green’s other novel, Looking for Alaska, has been picked up by Watermark Pictures. Today John Green confirmed that not only will Sarah Polley be writing the script for the movie, but will be directing the film as well. Polley is the Canadian filmmaker behind such acclaimed personal films as Away From Her and Take This Waltz. She last made, Stories We Tell, the award-winning documentary about her search for the truth behind her family.

 

Looking for Alaska Official Synopsis:

16-year-old Miles Halter, who, after an antiseptic adolescence in Florida, moves to a boarding school in Alabama and learns coming-of-age lessons from his roommate and his beautiful and mysterious best friend, Alaska Young. She enthralls Miles with stories of adventurous and self-destructive behavior — and teaches him to drink, smoke, and plot elaborate pranks against the school’s rich preppies — but despite their adulation for her, they can tell that she is unhappy and perhaps headed for big trouble.
