Paper Towns Gets a Release Date!

Loved The Fault in our Stars movie? Then you’ll love the Paper Towns movie based another of John Green’s best-selling novels. The movie is expected to hit theaters July 31st, 2015. The crew will include some of The Fault in our Stars team like producers Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen, director Josh Boone, and actor Nat Woolf (Isaac in TFIOS) will be playing the lead role of Quentin Jacobsen.

Synopsis:

Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life — dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge — he follows.

After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues — and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew

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.

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.

Papertowns Movie Adaption!

With The Fault in our Stars doing so well in theaters FOX has decided to buy the movie rights for another one of John Green’s best-selling novels, Papertowns. The film has already cast Nat Wolff (Isaac in TFIOS) to play the leader role of Quentin Jacobsen. However, no other actors have been cast and although there is currently no director tied to the movie there is the good possibility Josh Boone (TFIOS directer) will take it on.

So what else can you expect? Another heartwarming story that bottles up the essence of coming of age, falling in love and everything in between. Paper Towns follows Quentin Jacobsen—also known as Q—as he follows clues left by Margo, his missing neighbor, who he also happens to be in love with. Paper Towns also has an incredible supporting cast of characters in Q’s quirky social circle: Radar—who runs a site similar to Wikipedia—and Ben, a girl-crazy best friend who’s obsessed with landing a date to prom.

The story keeps you on your toes with the mystery of Margo—and it’s one of desperation all too reminiscent of Hazel and Gus’ journey to Amsterdam.

It has also been teased that the ending of the film will be tweaked slightly in other to give the reader a bigger sense of closure. There is no official date set for when this movie will hit the box office but stay tuned nerdfighters!
