John Green’s Novel ‘Paper Towns’ Set for the Big Screen, Nat Wolff to Star
The movie adaptation of John Green’s heartbreaking YA novel ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ may not even be out yet, but already Fox 2000 has already garnered a deal for his book ‘Paper Towns’ to also come to life on the big screen. The film is set to star Nat Wolff, who also co-stars along Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort in ‘The Fault in Our Stars.’
‘Paper Towns’ tells the story of Quentin (Wolff), a young man who shares a harrowing secret with his neighbor, Margo. Though the two grew apart, one night she sneaks into his room and asks him to help her get revenge on everyone who has ever wronged her. The next day Q discovers clues left for him and he soon realizes his neighbor is more of a mystery than he’s ever known.
Wolff, who you may remember from Nickelodeon’s ‘The Naked Brother’s Band,’ also starred in 2013’s ‘Admission’ opposite Tina Fey and Paul Rudd, and ‘Behaving Badly’ alongside Selena Gomez.
Though Green’s ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ has not yet hit theaters — it is scheduled for a June 6 release — there is much buzz surrounding the film, based on the author’s best-selling novel by the same name. And Fox has to be anticipating that ‘The Fault’ is going to be a huge film for the company, considering they decided to go ahead and adapt another one of Green’s novels.
Green is also set to be an executive producer on the ‘Paper Towns’ film adaptation.
